The fast food giant is selling limited edition poultry for teens to wear to the end of term event.
Prom season is almost upon us and KFC is celebrating the occasion with its very own chicken corsage.
In a #HowDoYouKFC advertisement, viewers watch as a nervous high school couple exchange glances and formalities before the dance. The girl pins the boutonniere on her date, and then waits nervously for her corsage. When the boy opens the box to reveal a KFC drumstick attached to some baby’s breath he explains: ‘I know how much you like original recipe.’ The girl looks befuddled and concerned, until she gets one whiff of her corsage and the scent of fried chicken is enough to woo her back into pre-prom bliss.
An amusing ad to be sure, but KFC is going one step further, offering up 100 KFC corsages at Louisville, Kentucky florist Nanz & Kraft. For $20, you can purchase the baby’s breath wristwrap and just have to add the chicken to achieve full effect. The corsage comes with a $5 coupon to KFC to purchase a drumstick for that special someone.
Watch the ad below, and consider which goes best with a prom dress: Original Recipe or Extra Crispy?
