WORK:
KFC
"Chicken Town"
KFC take on fried chicken fakers in this portentous commercial which focuses on the high street poultry boom. The ad opens with a shadowy figure cruising down a busy urban street, neon signs of lesser imitators reflecting in the vehicle's glossy exterior to a lofty, classical soundtrack. The driver, of course, is none other than the shoelace-tied Colonel himself.
