Bad Ad: KFC fakes a, uh, just read the story

(How’s that for clickbait?)

This is a story that I knew was too good to pass up sharing as soon as I read the words “‘hot and spicy’ handjob” in the A.V. Club’s reporting. The gist of it is that KFC Australia tested out a suggestive ad for some new chicken thing it’s trying to pass off as food, and by “suggestive” I mean “it looks like straight-up porn.” People were understandably not so into the campaign and it quickly got pulled, perhaps too soon for it to be a real feature on this blog. But the article linked above is chock-full of great phrases lines like “McDonald’s is probably field-testing an R-rated Grimace right now, possibly one who breaks the fourth wall to ask you directly if, “You’re fuckin’ lovin’ it, right? Hell yeah, you are. Eat that shit up.”” and some seriously stellar suggested slogans for the chain to use in the future, so laugh (but please don’t eat) at your leisure.
