Fast Food #5: Chicken Dances and Frosty Posses

Wrapping up Fast Food week are a couple newer campaigns from KFC and Wendy's.

KFC wants you to unthink what you thought about their chicken (ie. they're selling grilled chicken now). It took them how long to start serving grilled chicken?

They have a few things going on here, first is a Chicken Dance video upload. Film yourself dancing to their song and put it up on their YouTube page. Looks like 35 members so far. I'm interested in seeing how it does so I'll keep checking in.

And of course they have a game. AND it's another rip-off Guitar Hero mechanic. No one's getting tired of that yet.

They also have an Iphone App. You put the iphone up to your face, covering your mouth, and talk into a microphone. The mouth, complete with a gem-studded grill, moves to whatever words you speak. I wonder if there's a game in that idea somewhere. A two-player. One person speaks while the other watches the screen and directs them?

That wraps up the interesting bits on KFC. I'm not sure what to think of the Wendy's Frosty Posse. I dont' know if i feel dirty for having even watched this. I realize it's tongue-in-cheek, but....well you take a look.

It's the Frosty Posse. The poll on the right asks "Who do you want to get 'Frosty' with?"...and "Mom" is the first answer. That's just...weird.

I'm a Digital ACD in Advertising land. I have been in love with the internet for over 10 years now. And I have a Red Bull problem. There I said it.

I travel around different industries every week or so and look for interesting and tasty interactive bits. I hope to make this a place for ad folk to keep up to date. And I just enjoy the spelunk.
