Carl’s Jr. launches new cod sandwich with swimsuit model


National fast-food chains Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s launched the new charbroiled Atlantic cod fish sandwich Wednesday with a little help from a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Would you expect anything less from the company who brought you hot, half-naked chicks fighting at a BBQ or Audrina Patridge downing a turkey burger in a bikini?

Swimsuit model Nina Agdal stars in the commercials for the new sandwich. You can watch the blond beauty in action when the commercial premiers during the Super Bowl broadcast Sunday. Or check out the behind-the-scenes video above. It stars Agdal in a bikini eating the charbroiled Atlantic cod fish sandwich on a tropical beach.

The sandwich is boasted as the first charbroiled fish sandwich to hit a national fast-food chain menu. Coming in at 420 calories, the sandwich ($3.99) features a charbroiled Atlantic cod filet, creamy tartar sauce, tomato and lettuce on a honey wheat bun. It’s now available at all Carl’s Jr. locations and will pop up on the Hardee’s menu Monday.
