KFC uses stereotypical slapstick advertising to sell spicy chicken.
But all this KFC advertising does is promote violence, violence against men.
Considering the world we live in it is hard to understand how a huge conglomerate like Yum! Brands, owner of KFC, fell prey to such immature and archaic marketing. Watch the video. It is showing at www.KFC.com, too! We guess KFC is proud of it, though it probably makes their chickens blush with shame. Below the video is a copy of the letter we sent asking them to stop the ads. We’re asking you to go to their website and ask them the same. We’re also asking the you stop buying KFC until they stop running the ad campaign.
Letter to KFC demanding this ad be removed.
NCFM invites you to join them and A Voice for Men in contacting KFC to register your protest over this unfortunate choice in advertising.
Tell KFC to stop promoting violence! Be nice, but go to their website and leave a comment. Send them emails. Take the Customer Satisfaction Survey and tell them you won’t buy their products until the get rid of the ad campaign. Help them understand why what they are doing is wrong. Write letters.
