KFC’s Solution to Awkward Situations

posted by Stal on 2010.01.12, under Stal

As mentioned previously, the Australian wing of KFC released an ad suggesting that a white man in an “awkward situation”/crowd of black people resolve tension by offering up a bucket of KFC.

Aired as part of a series called “KFC’s cricket survival guide”, the 30-second clip depicts an uncomfortable looking man named Mick wearing a green and yellow Australian cricket shirt, surrounded on all sides in a cricket stand by high spirited Caribbean fans.

“Need a tip when you’re stuck in an awkward situation?” Mick asks. He then passes round a bucket of KFC chicken, the drumming stops and he remarks: “Too easy.”

Note: the ad depicts people from the West Indies, who are (mostly) unrelated to people from the Indian subcontinent.

McSalads, move over. In an astonishing affront to the namesake dish, KFC has announced the addition of grilled chicken to their menu starting today. This after they began funding pothole repairs emblazoned with the KFC logo. What next, the release of Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe?
