KFC delivered a blunt but funny apology to it’s customers for a chicken supply shortage that shut down stores across the UK this week.
The ad was created by the fast-food chain’s UK creative agency and started running it in The Sun and Metro today (23 February).
The ad rearranges the letters of its name to spell out “FCK” on a chicken bucket. Text below the image reads, “We’re sorry.”
“A chicken restaurant without any chicken. It’s not ideal, It’s been a hell of a week, but we’re making progress.”
We actually remember a time back in the 90’s when Arby’s ran out of roast beef and we were in utter shock. It’s like the one thing you are supposed to be able to deliver on! But we don’t remember anyone apologizing to us…just three employees standing there looking lost LOL!
Speaking about funny KFC marketing…remember this 80’s commercial where they had Foghorn Leghorn promote it. Slightly strange no?
