A fast food chain in Pakistan keeps making woefully sexist adverts

Hardee’s has a habit of offending people, and its new advertisement in Pakistan in the form of a gif has come under fire for its sexually suggestive content.

A woman’s red lipsticked pop-art mouth opens with a tape measure showing up to 10 inches. “Big Enough?” the letters taunt.

It’s big, it’s loaded, its Hardee's. Which Hardee’s burger is your favorite?

There's this gif with a woman

A tortilla wrapped with Santa Fe sauce, Jalapeno coins, Pepper black cheese. It's the all new 'Chicken Loader'.

Across the pond, Americans aren't particularly impressed either.

This is borderline pornography, and just to sell a damn sandwich. Not only is it sexist, but there are probably kids watching this.
