Padma Lakshmi For Carl's Junior

Padma's New Gig as Carl's Jr. Spokeswoman

Following in the footsteps of Paris Hilton, Top Chef hostess, Padma Lakshmi, is the latest spokeswoman of Carl's Jr. Lakshmi appears in a new commercial that depicts her seductively eating a Western bacon hamburger.

Of the ad, Padma told People that it's "a beautiful love song to food. I think eating in itself is the act of great sensuality, so all you have to do is point the camera in the right direction." However, after watching a video of it, I'm not so sure if the words "beautiful" and "love song" are the best descriptors.

Check out the advertisement below and let me know what you think. Do you consider it sexy or trashy?

She really gets on my nerves for some reason. :shrug: And I'm really not convinced she would eat a Carl's Junior burger in real life. I don't buy it. Sell out! :raspberry:

Carl's jr has disgusting food and their commercials where the food is dripping all over their faces is a HUGE turn off. It is too bad she is promoting such unhealthy crap. Sexy? No way.

I watched it with the sound off and I thought it was sexy. Don't know if I'd feel the same if I heard any voice overs or cheesey music.

TRASHY. A step above the Paris Hilton ad, but still TRASHY. Although, I'm prejudiced because I agree with sandy!

I want that dress. I just giggled through the whole thing. She looks really sexy though. . . I think this commercial is pretty clean as CJ sensual commercials go. The one with girl riding the bull and Paris Hilton with the car, now those were trashy.

For some reason, I just don't think she eats Carl's Jr. food in real life...greasy, nasty burgers aren't my definition of "sexy" food.

Sex sells. Not a new concept in advertising.

the minute she pulled the skirt of her dress up her thighs - i know it was only one frame, but that was the moment it went from sexy to trashy for me.
