    The fact that they are eating crap and the mother is telling the daughter “you’re happy”.

  2. Greg Allen says:

    Is the problem that the mother thinks eating KFC is some sort of parenting victory?

  3. Greg Allen says:

    Despite my snipe above, I don’t see anything wrong in this ad. Is it a technical issues? I don’t see it.

    As for a specific health issue with KFC — I don’t have one aside from the fact that Americans eat too much fattening fast food.

    I live in the inner city and I see how some poorer kids eat _a lot_ of the “value menu” type food. But, I go to the suburbs and it seems just as bad… they just order the food with the bigger fonts on the menu board.

    Only the top 1% can avoid fast food as a class of people.

      Not true Greg…. and you KNOW I luv to rail against the 1%….but I make zero per year and cook as much as I can from scratch. Sadly, besides money, what a lot of poor people lack is ….. an interest in cooking as a hobby/life experience. But when you’ve done most other hobbies and you do have to eat everyday…cooking is kinda a natural.

      Page one of this thread has 3-4 good listings of whats wrong…. with a Bingo. Didn’t you respond there? Musta been some other thread??

      Greg deserves a medal.

      First, KFC isn’t actual chicken.

      In fact, KFC isn’t even made from actual food. Notice that even Vegan don’t complain about KFC since there is no meat involved in the product and has an infinite lifespan because no bacteria are interested in it either.

    I know what the problem is. The food appears to be edible.

      I think we’ve found a critic… ^^

      And Bullshit Artist says “”Watch as the father uses the chicken leg instead of the usual 2-finger vomit gesture.


      Today, on the drive, I thought about how KFC and my attitudes toward them have changed over the years..

      little kid:: Loved it. Every sunday, couldn’t wait. I only have ever since eaten a leg with mashed potato mimic and ‘gravy’.

      colledge:: Loved it. Would get a leg and extra potatoes/hold slaw and small drink for like $2.69 — or was that captain d’s price for the 2-piece fish’n’fry/hold slaw.

      now:: I still try to like it from time to time but do not and I seem to be slightly allergic to something in most of that crap today anyways — always makes me cough for some reason. Price has gone up a buck or so but no drink, no extra potatoes, and i hate sporks.

      Wendys:: used to be the best (even if it was worms). Nasty now.

      cap’n D’s:: it’s not always nasty now, just overpriced. I hear tell that it used to be mako shark is why the fish was good, clean, non-slimy but sometime ago it went to cod.

      Sonic:: So sad that little squashed thing they call a sonic burger now. Even the tater tots never sit right with me anymore.

      Subway’s:: Hmm. I never ate *right* there anyways — always just ham’n’swiss on wheat/heat it up/mayonnaise — place always smelled like fruit flies and white people even back when the bread was not like chewing on cardbord.

      I hated mcdonalds, except for those nuggets… yuck. Somehow, we were always there scratching silver latex crap for some kind of lottery/game, collecting and assorting those, and going on to get the silver crap all over the fries — Which I do like, still. Something nasty in there, I’m sure, though. Bevis, Butthead, frenchflies. Heherheheeee.

    It’s an endless bucket of chicken. No matter how much they eat or dip it never goes down.
    Now that’s value!

  6. Benjamin says:

    I didn’t see anything really wrong with the commercial. Is it just me? I saw a typical family eating the advertise fast food. Nothing about the family stood out. They look almost like a family from my church.

    The only thing I really saw wrong is that the children can’t sit still to eat dinner. However, since parents can’t discipline their children anymore, what do you expect?

    Of course, it is an advertisement, so keep your BS filter up, but it is just a commercial. Not all shows can be paid for by viewer/producers, so need to be paid for via the advertisement model. If you don’t like advertisements, then watch something with a value for value model like The No Agenda Show. Or the subscription model like Netflix.

  7. Jeff says:

    What no sides!?

  8. Bob Harris says:

    Nothing wrong there (besides a mother cheerfully poisoning her children).

  9. Marc Perkel says:

    I blame global warming.

  10. Joey says:

    All the chicken fingers they eat look like a penis with testicles, and the way they eat them is highly suggestive. I can’t believe I’m the only one who noticed this. Either I’m a very observant or I’m a pervert.

    • pedro says:

      Nope, you ain’t the only one. The one that popped the most was the kid giving it to the mom.

  11. MikeN says:

    Right there in the title. It’s impossible to sit like that.

  12. David says:

    They are double dipping the chicken, if one is sick they all will be sick

  13. dave m brewer says:

    There’s a father…

    • dave m brewer says:

      Mother has a wedding ring on… kids don’t know who the black guy is… they act like white people.

  14. Glenn E. says:

    Somebody else already stopped the flaw. Four people extract chicken from this “bucket”. But the level only slightly drops, like no more than two pieces of chicken were removed. Also the dipping sauce cups stayed full, and untouched. So I think it’s safe to say this “family” were handed their chicken, from off-camera, pre-dipped. While the bucket got a slight redressing, to look disturbed. But not appear too depleted, because that’s such a negative in product advertising. It’s just like Tv cereal ads, when the bowl never gets any emptier, than when the person first starts eating.

    The truly glaring omission to this ad, is the lack of any watermelon. Sorry, I just couldn’t help it. Obviously, the melons were out of season, when they filmed this.
