The holiday season is not about getting constant notifications on your phone, so KFC wants to help you take a break from the internet

‘Tis the season for a barrage of holiday social media posts, a never-ending stream of coupons and cheesy advertising. If you’ve ever wanted to get away from it all, KFC has got you covered with what the fast food chain calls an ‘Internet Escape Pod.’ This $10,000 tent, draped with the famous Colonel’s likeness, is made of a U.S. steel structure adorned with enamel paint and architectural foam, all designed to make a barrier between you and the Wi-Fi signal.

The pod is big enough for eight people to fit inside, with a bucket of chicken, of course. The idea is to provide a space away from technology in order to enjoy the holiday.

George Felix, director of advertising for KFC U.S., said in a statement, “We’ve come up with several technologically advanced, creative experiences for our customers and fans this year. But even we feel the burden of technology during the holiday season. So we decided to go in the opposite direction and create an anti-technology product, using technology, to help one lucky buyer literally escape the holiday chaos.”

There is only one tent available for sale, so if you’re looking for a KFC escape from the modern world in the comfort of your own home, act fast.
