Oregon Season Tickets Will Smell Like a Carl's Jr Burger

By DJ Byrnes on July 31, 2014 at 11:13a

Oregon does a lot of cool advertising/promotion of themselves, but I'm not sure if a scratch-and-sniff is one of them.

Yes, that's right... their 2014 season tickets will smell like Carl Jr. burgers. I've never had a Carl's Jr. burger, and normally burgers smell delicious, but I'm not sure why my football ticket would need to smell like a fast food burger.

Unless.... unless this is a devious marketing ploy to get me to buy more Carl's Jr. burgers.

I guess you win again, capitalism.

Carl's Jr is Hardees.  Just on the west coast it goes by Carl's Jr.  Just like Rally's/Checkers. 

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

Hardees is actually good, IMO.

I love Hardees.  The ones here in Indy actually sell tacos and burritos too.

They're now owned by the same company & have started sharing a few menu items but for the most part they're still pretty different.

I've heard their tickets used to smell like game-worn Nike shoes, jerseys, and rotten jockstraps...

I understand if you want to have a sweet aromatic smell on them, but sometimes just the smell of a burger could be quite off putting. Have you ever smelled a burger that sat on the floor board of your car for a few days. not the best scent.

imagine leaving the ticket in your glove compartment by accident.

now maybe some pizza! That I could sniff for a while.

It would be wonderful to see the winner be a vegan or vegetarian...

This thread has gone in so many different directions - not quite sure what to post let alone what to think. HAHA

In their defense, a super star is delicious.

I thought the tickets would smell like duck with orange sauce.
