Yes, that does appear to be the guy who gets dissed in that Michael Jordan Hanes ad from last year, but now he’s the star of this latest Carl’s Jr. effort from David&Goliath that promotes the chain’s “Made from Scratch” biscuits. The mustachioed stranger in the ad above emerges from the sand and interrupts some SoCal beach revelry with his over-exaggerated drawl and basketful of buttery treats. We guess his intrusion, though, is not as egregious as Carl’s Jr. actually trying to convince people that they make biscuits like those scrumptious ones from the south. Could we just bring back Olivia Munn already? Credits after the jump.

Not content with the current state of popcorn, the best-selling gourmet popcorn brand in America, Orville Redenbacher’s, is introducing the microwaveable bag/bowl hybrid. That’s right. No longer will you feel bad about eating the popcorn straight out of the bag, and no longer will you have to wash your popcorn bowl. Truly, the “Pop Up Bowl” is a magical innovation in the world of snacking.
And, to help promote the new product, Orville Redenbacher’s and agency Venables Bell & Partners are calling on the goth-est magician of all, Criss Angel, who is apparently still around and a thing. Observe as this unsuspecting suburban couple gets their respective minds freaked by the power of popcorn and the lamest cable magician ever. Remember, “It’s not a trick. It’s an illusion. Tricks are what whores do for money.” Credits after the jump.
