KFC published this video to their YouTube page 5 days ago announcing the launch of their very own brand of sunscreen.
WTF you ask? Yup, you heard us right, SUNSCREEN. And not only that but it will leave you smelling like crispy chicken (because who doesn’t love smelling like fried food?).
According to the fast food chain, the sun “gives us life” but also “gives us painful sunburns” and that’s why they’ve made KFC Extra Crispy. The SPF will protect you from the sun whilst the crispy fried scent will leave you feeling delicious, apparently.
“While I’d love to tell you our customers have been asking for this, they haven’t. In fact, I’m pretty confident nobody ever asked for this. It’s just some crazy idea we dreamed up.”
Kevin Hochman, chief marketing officer for KFC US
We made a sunscreen and it’s free* and it smells like fried chicken and fried chicken smells delicious.https://t.co/fdqaJWcnpY
