Carl Hardee Sr., played by actor Charles Esten, returns to company headquarters to find out his son, Carl Jr., has been running it like a frat house on steroids. Having decided to feature actual burgers in its campaigns rather than sexy women shoving juicy burgers in their mouths, Carl Sr. demands that an oversized photo of scantily clad model Charlotte McKinney (from its All Natural Burger campaign) immediately be taken down, and replaces it with a tasteful close-up of a hamburger. With the trouble-causing Carl Jr. following closely behind, Hardee Sr. gets down to business by announcing that from now on, the company will focus on what they do best: pioneering the great American burger.
