Carl's Jr has released their Superbowl commercial early to controversy. The commercial has model Charlotte McKinney introduce us, in her special way, to the All Natural Carl's Jr Burger. Some say this is sexist, and others say it is a step backwards. But frankly how can they tell the sex of the burger? I also didn't see her walk backwards once. I know, I watched it several times. Seriously, why are people so hung up on a pretty lady, walking in, and getting attention. This is exactly why this commercial is fantastic! It does the job, and Charlotte deserves the attention. Way to go for her, and for Carl's Jr to have the guts to keep the message simple, artistic, mysterious, sexy and still funny. Reminds me of clips in Austin Powers movies. I don't see anything wrong with it, and she is doing nothing crude or inappropriate. No reason to run from our natural tendencies to admire beautiful people, and eat burgers. A natural couple.

I am always incredulous at the amount of raw talent that some individuals have. This artist takes a Batman statue, removes the clothing, and does a full repaint. The work is superb. It is exactly what I aspire to do. Always wonderful watching a master craftsman at work, and to see his techniques and methods for painting and designing various changes on statues. This video is just one of many, and I urge you to watch when you can, just how the process takes shape. Rafael Robledo Jr is the artist, my hats off to you sir!
