X-Men Love X-Tra Bacon

One may need to employ mutant superpowers to take down the two X-Tra servings of bacon on the new Western X-Tra Bacon Cheeseburger and X-Tra Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit from Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s.

The brands’ promotional tie-in with 20th Century Fox’s release of X-Men: Days of Future Past kicked off today with the premiere of “Mystique”.

Additional spots from creative agency 72andSunny starring two more X-Men characters will be revealed in April.

Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are also inviting fans to unleash their inner mutants and participate in the “X-Men Digital Makeover”. By submitting a photo while eating or drinking a Carl’s Jr. or Hardee’s product on Instagram using the hashtag #EatLikeYouMeanIt, fans get the chance to receive a photo mutant makeover.
