party poker

Duuude, club!

[Hardee’s TV commercial]

Somewhere between 1983-1986, Hardee’s ran a relentless television campaign advertising a trio of yummy new sammiches, utilizing the off-screen voice talent of Don Pardo. When Don announced the “new chicken club,” a stereotyped surfer guy appeared in front of the camera and approvingly uttered the banal response. He was then literally sandwiched between two human-sized pieces of bread (!?), and, one assumes, suffocated. Used either as a greeting, a way of acknowledging your own stupidity, or to point out surfer stereotypes.

Jeff Stendec (1997)
