Dave Thomas's daughter Wendy Thomas is following in the old man's footsteps by appearing in Wendy's commercials; specifically, this commercial for the new Dave’s Hot ‘n Juicy Cheeseburger. Thomas was the inspiration for the Wendy's logo in 1969, but this is the first time she has appeared in a commercial for the chain. Her dad, of course, was regularly featured in ads. Mercifully, they don't make her braid her hair or wear a blue-striped dress.
