Fox and the producers of X-Men: Days of Future Past caused quite a stir back in January when they revealed that they had stolen the look for their version of the mutant Quicksilver from the Burger King Kid's Club character Kid Vid. Not content with stealing the image of a beloved fast food icon, the producers have solidified their greasy image by showing Quicksilver eating an X-Tra Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit in a new commercal for Carls Jr. The move follows a bizarrely sexist commercial last month that saw Mystique forced to shapeshift into a man in order to enjoy an X-Tra Bacon Thickburger, because only a man could put something that thick and juicy into his mouth, we guess.
"I think this shows that our Quicksilver is super cool, and in no way an inferior version to the one appearing in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, or even the porn version," said director Bryan Singer proudly as he rubbed bacon all over his nude body and quivered.
But the commercial may have had some adverse affects on the character himself.
"Oh god!" cried Quicksilver, tears streaming down his face, as he lay crumpled in a ball at the bottom of his shower. "I can't believe I did it! Oh Bova, I'm sorry!"
In the comics, Quicksilver was raised by a talking cow named Bova who was created by supervillain The High Evolutionary because back in the sixties there was nothing more terrifying than anthropomorphic animals. They did a lot of acid back then. While the producers were kind enough to force him to eat the flesh of his own nursemaid, we do really think Bova would prefer that Pietro stick to a strict vegan diet.
Check out the video below, and go see X-Men Days of Future Past on May 23rd, we guess.
