Only in the USA. But, to be fair, it is a bizarre ad that makes no sense to me whatsoever.

    General Motors supposedly once had to redesign a floor mat that was being used in the Middle East because it had a pattern on it that resembled a religious symbol–drivers didn’t want to step on the sacred symbol or something like that.

    This commercial proves that the white man is uncomfortable around black people and can easily assuage his uneasiness by offering them fried chicken. Thus, white police officers might keep buckets of chicken in their patrol cars and then throw them at black youths whom the police might feel uncomfortable around.

    What amazes me is that the creators of this ad didn’t realize that politically correct twits were going to get their knickers tied up in knots over this. ANYTHING like this is going to get the PC police down on your back, guaranteed. As for the ad itself, it doesn’t make sense because the art of storytelling has been lost in Madison Avenue (and in other advertising venues). Few ad people truly understand the structure of how a story is created; thus, you see ads like this KFC one because some “director” and some “writer” believe that the visuals and music are “cool.” Having worked at Microsoft and other places where 20-somethings reign, I can tell you that this world is in a world of hurt. (I’m almost 47, but don’t look it; point is, when I choose to do so, I can mingle easily with the 30-somethings, who take it for granted that I am one of their own. They too, like the 20-somethings, lack so much in terms of education, drive, and experience. That’s why we have KFC ads like this one, and stores that sell yum-yum cupcakes to jammies-wearing adults who have never grown up mentally or emotionally.)

    This is an Australian ad, not an American one.

    Austin, I know it’s an Australian ad. I can read. It was Americans who put pressure on KFC to pull it. Maybe you didn’t read the first paragraph of the article I linked to?
