At first I thought that KFC was having a complete laugh at our expense after announcing that they would be releasing a limited edition sunscreen that smells exactly like their chicken, but it turns out that they were being serious the entire time. KFC’s Extra Crispy Sunscreen, smells like a classic Streetwise 2 and if you’re a resident of the good old USA (where else?) you’re able to head on over to the KFC website to sign up for a delivery of the chicken-flavoured SPF30 sun protection.
KFC will then ship your sunscreen within the next eight weeks, regardless of which part of the country you’re in. Now you might be wondering who on earth would want to smell like a drumstick while catching a tan on the beach, but apparently according to the marketing team over at KFC it’s all already sold out.
Either way, great little piece of marketing – just don’t know if I’d prefer smelling like the Colonel’s Secret Herbs and Spices than sunscreen and summer.
