Philadelphia Eagles fans aren't too fond of Terrell Owens, the former star wide receiver who had a love-hate relationship with supporters during his two years in the city. So it may surprise some people to see that in choosing a spokesperson for the new Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, Carl's Jr. went with ... Terrell Owens.
The burger joint sure knows how to get a reaction out of sports fans with its commercials.
The new spot opens with Owens lounging by a pool, reminiscing about his days in Philadelphia. While the fans hated him, Owens says he loved the food. The new sandwich, Owens says, allows him to keep the "love" and lost the hate.
Philadelphia fans probably won't be frequenting Carl's Jr. after this commercial. But then again, if you live in Philadelphia, there are better places to get a Philly cheesesteak than Carl's Jr.
