There doesn’t seem to be much that Ronda Rousey can’t do. Not only is she carrying the Swayze torch in a remake of Road House and dominating opponents in The Octagon, but she’s also crushing sales with sandwich promotion. Her ad for Carl’s Jr new Cinnamon Swirl French Toast breakfast monstrosity is a huge success for the fast food chain and they apparently want more from her according to TMZ:
Our sources over at Carl’s Jr. tell us Rousey’s spot for their Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich boosted sales almost immediately. They didn’t want to give up specific numbers, but one source said the campaign “far exceeded” all goals.
The ad’s been running nationwide for less than 2 weeks, and we’re told it already has more than ONE BILLION media impressions.
So, yeah, one of the best athlete’s in the world is helping to sell a sandwich that would probably keep a normal person bed ridden. America is wonderful! And it’s the truth, too, mostly because no one is holding a gun against people’s heads. Plus it looks delicious, even if I question the need to slam everything together in one sandwich. It’s another Patton Oswalt or Jim Gaffigan bit waiting to happen.
