Padma Lakshmi’s steamy ad for Hardee’s


Top Chef” host and supermodel Padma Lakshmi gets down and dirty in a new commercial for the Hardee’s Western Bacon Thickburger.

The ad shows the culinary hottie sitting on the steps, gap-legged, exposing cleavage and thighs, while deep-throating devouring a burger like a pro. Wow! She never wants anything to go to waste!

The ad was created by L.A.-based advertising agency, Mendelsohn|Zien, also the masterminds behind many Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s campaigns including the terrific Paris Hilton ad “That’s Hot,” from 2005.

Born in Kerala, India, Padma has modelled for top designers such as Emanuel Ungaro, Ralph Lauren, and Alberta Ferretti and done ad campaigns for Roberto Cavalli and Versus.
