Improbable Ads: KFC


What i really wanted to discuss is the absolute, complete and utter lack of realism in the current KFC ad, for a wrap or toasted roll or some shit.

What we find is a random dude jauntily prancing down the street holding said wrap/roll/shit when he’s suddenly struck by some kind of impulse.

He stops, looks at his hand(?) and then proceeds to leap over a nearby white picket fence, cruise past a couple of chicks standing in a hallway and bowls out into the backyard, where a bit of a party seems to be jumping off. Considering the improbable nature of the ad thus far, it is no small feat that what follows is completely unbelievable.


Dap – Obama style.

He walks up behind the DJ, and with the same hand that had the ‘impulse’ at the beginning (quite probably covered in traces of chicken), he does a little one-two scratch on the already playing record. Then, as if he’s not a jaunty, home invading, pain in the ass, he gives the DJ dap. For the unfamiliar, that involves the classic fist to fist tap.

My point – as if there is one – is simply that when someone barges into my house, doesn’t say hi, and then touches the records, well, lets just say that fist would be moving faster, and directed much closer to the face.

In lieu of the actual ad.

    Nothing says “VoiceOf Today’sYouth” like a ‘Wuck-Wucka’ fresh from a Sample Library and Stripey-Shirted Upper-Lower-Middle-Classed White Kids performing house invasions..

    Finger on the pulse.
