Derek

Kyle:  Whoa, Derek, I was just talking to Stephanie and I heard that, uh, the Paris Hilton video where she’s eating the Carl’s Junior hamburger was just banned from the air.

Derek:  Yeah. I’ve heard that, too. It sounded like everybody was all up in arms about the ad.

Kyle:  Have you seen it?

Derek:  Uh, yeah. I saw it one time before they banned it from TV.

Kyle:  Yeah. I just watched on the internet and it’s definitely, uh, kind of risqué, but I don’t know if it should necessarily be banned.

Derek:  Yeah. It seems kind of interesting with all of the other shows that are on that they would ban a commercial like that.

Kyle:  Yeah. Late night television these days can get pretty racy itself.

Derek:  Yeah. It’s kind of an interesting cultural experience here.

Kyle:  Well I’m sure Paris Hilton is enjoying the media. She seems to really like getting in front of the camera.

Derek:  Oh yeah. That’ll help her career.

Kyle:  All right. See ya, man.

Discussion

This ad was a little bit on the racy side. But Kyle has a point when he says it’s not much different from other stuff on TV.
It featured Paris Hilton wearing a revealing outfit, washing a car. When I saw it, I just thought it was juvenile. Interestingly, it had little to do with hamburgers.
Have you seen the ad? Go google it and see if you can find anything.
