Where’s the Beef?
Wendy’s is no stranger to dissing Micky D’s or Burger King in their ads on tv and in social media. The fast-food war has been ignited as long as their grills. This 1984 ad is only one in the “Where’s the beef?” series starring the late Clara Peller, who has been immortalized as an 80’s icon.
After the Super Bowl ad ran, Clara appeared on multiple tv shows to give interviews and recite the phrase that made her famous. She even had a televised meeting with the mayor of New York City. Sadly, Clara passed away two years after her Wendy’s role, but we still remember her as the feisty grandma who asked the most important question in fast-food history.
