In a recent conference call with investors, KFC outlined strategies for improving flagging U.S. sales, including projecting a “younger image.” Since we’re going to be matching these guys stride for stride until they agree to make some major changes in the way they treat chickens, that means we need to be hitting the same markets with our message that KFC tortures animals. The latest salvo in this operation is our series of edgy horror-movie-style anti-KFC spots, which will be debuting in Boston this week for the BU, Tufts, and Harvard audiences as a counter to the college-targeted advertising that KFC’s been running.
This one’s my favorite from the series. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should check out the whole site. It’s kind of awesome.
