Can We Please Talk About Quiksilver in That Hardee’s Biscuit Commercial?

Just one big pile of X-crement.

The fast food breakfast wars have claimed another casualty: Evan Peters’ dignity. Days of Future Past has gone full Evian-baby with Quiksilver’s appearance in this totally gross/baffling ad for biscuits.

Obviously corporate partnerships are an established part of making big budget movies. But did the commercial for this corporate partnership have to be so incredibly un-cool? The close up sounds of wet chewing! The glistening bacon falling! The horrible orange juice slurping!

It’s not enough that poor Evan Peters’ costume makes him looks like a reanimated mop, but now he’s forever going to be associated with that over-exaggerated squelching sound effect when he chews. And what about the noise the biscuit makes when it plops on the ground?¬† Seriously, dude, the Hardee’s sound editor owes you big time.

Quiksilver’s biscuit-shilling is almost more disgusting than the Hardees’ Mystique ad, although her commercial was more notable for its weird gender implications, i.e. an X-Tra Bacon Thickburger is too much meat for a l’il mutant lady to handle. Also lots of gross chewing sound effects in that spot too, though.

 Hopefully the time travel element of Days of Future Past will allow the X-Men to go back and find a corporate sponsor less obsessed with the sounds of chewing.
