For years Carl's Jr.'s spots have had a consistent formula: Take one beautiful and scantily clad model that would probably never eat Carl's Jr., add a few double entendres that highlight the model's attributes, then mention the sandwich a few times.
But lately the brand seems to be playing with consumers' expectations, and it's quite fun.
Instead of the usual waifish model, the brand has now tapped undefeated MMA champion Ronda Rousey to introduce its Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich.
Here 72andSunny takes the public perception of Rousey—a merciless fighter known for her lightning-fast KOs—and then shifts to showing her lighter side. (You don't have to look much farther than Rousey's recent Reddit AMA to see how charmingly nerdy she can get when she starts talking Pokemon and video games.)
And yes, playing up the sex appeal of a a female fighter could be seen as a less than progressive stance, especially for a brand with Carl's Jr.'s reputation. But the ad shows several sides of Rousey, making it clear that she, like most human beings, doesn't fit into any convenient stereotype.
Plus, it's nice to see an ass-kicking spokeswoman who can actually take a bite out of the food they're meant to be selling.

KFC has rolled out the next phase of its campaign with the revamped Colonel Sanders, and despite Norm Macdonald's recent arrival, he's already feeling presidential.
Earlier this month Wieden + Kennedy swapped one Saturday Night Live veteran (Darrell Hammond) for another (Macdonald) as part of its new take on Colonel Sanders for KFC.
Now a mumbling Macdonald is helming a series of FDR-esque "fryerside chats" in the form of 15-second spots. What's he talking about? Who knows? New deals, I guess. KFC deals.
