KFC loves a good PR stunt, and Circuit Breaker is cool with them so long as they cleverly involve gadgets. Today, the fast-food chain announced that its new, India-only Smoky Grilled Wings will come packaged in a box with detachable drone parts. Although customers will have to look up instructions online, they can eventually assemble the box and its parts to turn it into a Bluetooth-connected drone.
The company’s calling the box a “KFO,” or Kentucky Flying Object,” which I guess is fine. The boxes will only be available on January 25th and 26th.
KFC has previously launchedlots of gadgets, most of which were available in Asia, where American fast-food chains are historically considered a place to splurge for “family occasions.” Apparently the US isn’t very gadget-receptive market, or maybe we don’t like actual flying chicken wings as much? I have no idea. But please fly your chicken wings drone for me.
