KFC Releases Fried Chicken-Scented Sunblock?!
Considering this is the same place that's been offering products like the Double-Down (a chicken sandwich that's essentially just two fried chicken patties with cheese and pickles pressed between it) and the chizza (a flat fried chicken breast dressed up like a pizza), it shouldn't be all too surprising that something like THIS is now on the market. Introducing KFC's Extra Crispy Sunscreen - a fried chicken-scented SPF 30 sunblock that keeps you from getting, well, overdone.
According to a spokesperson, the sunblock was inspired by their current Extra Crispy marketing campaign and of, course, the smell of their trademark seasoning:
"Our chicken is hand breaded and freshly prepared in our kitchens all day every day, which makes the smell in our restaurants unparalleled. The Extra Crispy Sunscreen is a fun way to leverage that with our fans."
The company released 3,000 FREE bottles of the lotion today, and of course, thanks to the wildfire that is social media, the supply was snatched up in lightning speed. There's been no announcements as to whether or not they will produce any more bottles of the stuff, but I'm sure you can probably find it on eBay next week with a 2000% mark-up from whatever Hawaiian Tropic would probably charge you.
Would you have wanted to smell like fried chicken too? Would you sport KFC's Extra Crispy sunscreen if you had the chance?
