The last crossover between X-Men: Days Of Future Past and Carl’s Jr. advertising was a gift to those with weird fetishes, but this second Carl’s Jr. ad featuring Evan Peters as Quicksilver is a gift to . . . we’re not sure whom. Maybe it’s a gift to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who’s playing the other Quicksilver and probably praising his luck to be cast in Avengers: Age Of Ultron instead of whatever the hell this is:
See, it’s an “X-tra” bacon sandwich. SYNERGY.
Anyway, it appears this really is how Quicksilver’s going to look. YouTube commenter hAnus criminal summed it up well: “Why does Archer’s mom look like she’s from Spy Kids?”
DANGER ZONE. And if you were wondering if this ad spawned any new Quicksilver memes, the answer is yes:
There will also be an ad featuring Daniel Cudmore as Colossus. That’s not out yet, but
Hardees Carl’s Jr. did release a behind-the-scenes video which gives away the high-larious joke in the Colossus ad. Apparently he’s Juggernaut now?
We liked the part about 40 seconds in when Evan Peters said his character wears “cool leather jackets”. Dude, if you can buy it at Hot Topic, it’s not cool. You look like Jack White in an alternate dimension where everyone has sex with robots.
