TASTE 4 (1).jpgSays Annabel Fribence, marketing director, individual meals, KFC Australia: "Our mission was to remind all Australians of the great taste of our Original Recipe Chicken, a formula that's remained unchanged since it wasTASTE 5 (1).jpg first created by Colonel Sanders himself.
"We know people often travel hundreds of kilometres to satisfy their KFC craving, so we thought we should return the favour. Our journey to Birdsville has been an exciting one. There was something magical listening to Australia's best country music artists, under the stars, while rolling upTASTE 6 (1).jpg your sleeves and getting stuck in to some finger lickin' good chicken."

It really reminds of me of that ad for Walkers crisps, only in a stupider reality where they went to a town called Chip instead of one called Sandwich and the result wasn't intelligent or charming at all

Our chickens so good its like eating real chicken in a rural farmy type fantasy vibe place, ummm no its not, consumers live in reality, theres no reward in this for them


Confused chicken said:

Umm, is that Plucka Duck on the front of the truck?

Mmmm dirty bird said:

It's fun. It looks good and make me want some chicken right now.

I'm a big KFC fan.

But whilst you get that they sponsor the Nirdsville Bash, you don't get any sense that bringing the bird to Birdsville was anything other than a regular delivery. No returning of favour. No degree of difficulty at all.

I can understand why. I don't want my KFC to have to go through a journey before reaching my belly, and as a connoisseur I wondered where they were cooked, but the spots don't quite deliver what is promised.
