KFC Suspends Free Chicken Promotion Just in Time to Save Mother’s Day
Overwhelmed by the response, and clearly terrified of the prospect of a chicken-less Mother’s Day (their busiest day of the year) KFC has suspended their free chicken promotion. They are issuing “rain checks”, which is code for forcing you to jump through so many hoops you’ll just give up on the free chicken. Of course that’s not going to happen… did they even see what people went through yesterday for their $4 worth of chicken?
To get this rain check, you must visit your local KFC, fill out a form, attach your coupon to it, and give it to the manager or mail it in. They’ll send you a new coupon, which will also include a free soda. Mother’s Day crisis averted!
They posted a video apology, which was sadly *not* recorded by Oprah- but by the CEO of the company. On a positive note, he’s sounds like he’s from New Zealand (and is giddy like a guy who hasn’t slept for a week) giving it a borderline Flight of the Concords feel. The video is after the jump…
New Zealand… Australia… Whatever. Throw a goatee on that guy and it might as well be Murray.
