Snag Some ‘Eat Like You Mean It’ Boxers from 72andSunny, Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s

Eat Like You Mean It

This summer, 72andSunny debuted a design for “Eat Like You Mean it” boxers for Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. CKE Restaurants fell in love with the design, and they decided to ask fans of the brand on Facebook if they would buy the boxers, given the opportunity. Fan response was enthusiastic enough that 72andSunny has made them available for sale, in a limited launch of 2,000 boxers for the holiday season. Having never enjoyed the pleasures of Carl’s Jr. or Hardee’s (one of the negatives of living in the northeast), I can’t truly understand the need to represent the fast food franchise. But this does seem like a funny gift for the burger lover in your life (although a bit expensive for a pair of boxers at $20). It’s also interesting that the brand used Facebook as a litmus test to see if their fans would be interested in the item. Seems like a smart move.

Since being released, the  boxers have made a big splash on the company’s Facebook page, as well as on Instagram. If you’re interested in purchasing “Eat Like You Mean It” boxers, you can do so here for a limited time.

So far, there are no plans to release the phrase on women’s underwear, where it would be given a significantly more suggestive connotation.
