Crazy Two-for-One Ad Parody: Carl's Jr. and Nyquil Be careful what you eat, day or night

Some dude named Adam Ray made this twofer parody ad for both Carl's Jr. and Nyquil, in which a goofy homoerotic commercial for the former is revealed to be a nightmare caused by ingestion of the latter. Adam clearly never beat Super Mario 2, which taught my generation that dream endings are B.S. That aside, this spoof has its moments. The bystander's intensely aroused reaction to the bearded hairy guy reminded me of the SNL "Schmitt's Gay" skit, which isn't a bad model for someone attempting an ad parody. He's got a long way to go before he can approach the brilliance of Roybertito's, though.
