I keep spotting this Green Hornet-themed ad for fast-food chain Carl's Jr. when I'm fast-forwarding through commercials, and thinking it's a new trailer for the Michel Gondry-directed superhero romp. And then I see the fast-foody horribleness, and my heart sinks.

Seriously, how desperate are the makers of Hornet to make back their budget by any means necessary? These spots may generate some quick revenue, but in terms of selling casual moviegoers on the concept of "Seth Rogen as a Batman knock-off with a cool car"... I just don't know. But at least it's a reminder that Carl's Jr. is still in business. So that's something, I guess.
