There are many reason to love KFC.
Number one: great fried chicken. Seriously great fried chicken.
Number two: they now do great thin fries, having learned the error of their ways about their thicker predecessors.
Number three: krushems. Lovely stuff.
Number four: that chicken again. Hmmmmm.
But now we have a fifth reason to love them and it’s very subtle indeed.
Their Twitter account follows just 11 people. Take a look at them and see if you can spot it.
11 people. Five spice girls… six guys called Herb. Spice… herb. Geddit?
It’s 11 herbs and spices. Their famous tag line.
Well played KFC. Needless to say, the rest of Twitter was highly impressed:
the person that runs the KFC account needs a raise. I don't care how much they make now. GIVE THEM A RAISE.— Samantha O'Pumpkins (@sicklittlejag) October 19, 2017
Even a rival doffed their virtual cap.
Just realized they weren't following back.— Wendy's (@Wendys) October 20, 2017
Good joke though.
There’s no higher praise than that delivered through gritted teeth from a sworn enemy.
KFC, you have won today.
