Audrina Partridge, Paris Hilton, and burger porn
Sex sells fast food in another Carl's Jr. commercial
 

The burger porn trend is here to stay, said Hamilton Nolan in Gawker. The Paris Hilton 2005 Carl's Jr. commercial—which was too hot to be aired on TV—was followed by another featuring "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi, and now "The Hills" star Audrina Partridge has been hired to train "America's meat lust" on the new teriyaki burger. "This sexualization of mass-produced, tongue-pleasing food will continue forever, because selling the myth of easy sex to men and the myth of being able to eat fast food while maintaining a model-esque body to women in one fell swoop is just too damn effective."

Audrina Partridge definitely couldn't fit many 660-calorie teriyaki burgers in her "ultra-thin bod," said Anthony Jones in All Headline News, and still fit into that gold bikini she's wearing. As she says in the commercial: "To look this hot in a bikini, I've got to give up, like, everything. But there's no way I'm giving up that teriyaki burger."

The big question is who will be next to jump on the "slutburger wagon," said Tami Yu in Digital City. Maybe it's time to move on from supermodels and actresses, and just get a "real porn star."
