National Restaurant Association Doing Us All a Favor

kfed.JPGSteven C. Anderson, the President of the National Restaurant Association, sent a letter to the head of Nationwide Insurance, asking the insurance firm to pull their Super Bowl ad featuring Kevin Federline working at a fast food restaurant. Anderson claims that the ad will depict fast food working conditions in a negative light. While this may be true, there’s a more significant underlying issue here – and I would suggest a minor edit to his letter:

We hope that these reports are inaccurate and that Nationwide will not be airing such an ad that would give the impression that working in a restaurant is demeaning and unpleasant Kevin Federline has the skills to work in a “fast food” restaurant. This would be a strong and a direct insult to the 12.8 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry.

    I hate people like you.

  2. fast food working conditions?! what about the fast food conditions?

  3. I’d love to see K-Fed busting a move behind the grill the way he does behind the mixing board (referring of course to that widely YouTubed “Popozao” clip). Now that would make a good commercial.

    If he butchers those burger patties half as bad as he butchered that track, I’d say he’s right at home.
