Hardees has apparently figured out something teenage boys have known for some time, there are some attractive, sometimes sexy teachers in the class room. But has Hardees gone to far in their TV ad that features a beautiful young teacher dancing in front of her class? Keep in mind, the students during the dance rap about the woman's "flat buns."
Is this fair, humorous marketing of Hardee's new "flat buns" -- on their burgers? Some teacher's in Tennessee think not. Dr. Earl Wiman, president of the Tennessee Education Association, claims the ad is "demeaning."
Is this art imitating reality? Compare the actress in the commercial to attractive real life teachers above who have been accused of inappropriate behavior. Teachers allegedly involved in inappropriate relationships have apparently become part of our children's reality. So, is this clever marketing or a bad attempt to offer some levity on a serious concern in our schools? Or is this really something more?
Update 9-24-07 Hardees has pulled their commercial due to consumer disgust!
