Colonel Sanders Wants to Bring Nashville to Your Lunch Break in New KFC Ads

Wieden+Kennedy Portland, 8 months, 1 week ago

W+K Portland and Biscuit Filmworks team up to launch fun new spots

Colonel Sanders Wants to Bring Nashville to Your Lunch Break in New KFC Ads

W+K Portland and Biscuit Filmworks have come together to create a humorous new campaign for KFC's delicious new Nashville Hot Chicken. In the spot, the Colonel tells us how to enjoy a legendary blend of spicy, smoky flavor without having to go all the way to Nashville, which isn't always feasible on a 30-minute lunch break. 

The Colonel says: "Howdy folks, it’s me - Colonel Sanders, and I’m here with some big news, and when I say big - I mean big. Like double whatever you think big is. Let me put it this way, if there were a way to type a drum roll sound I’d be doing that right now, but there isn’t. So…….(imagine a drum roll)....Introducing KFC’s NEW Nashville Hot Chicken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (That’s 17 !’s)"
