KFC creates buzz with fried chicken scented sunscreen
The high demand for bottles given away in the latest marketing gimmick.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Merging the world of sunscreen and crispy fried chicken.
KFC gave away 3,000 bottles of sunscreen that it said smelled like fried chicken to drum up buzz for its Extra Crispy chicken. But it ran out of the sunscreen just a few hours after posting about it on the internet.
In June, Louisville-based Yum! Brands hired actor George Hamilton to act as a "tanned and crispy" Colonel Sanders.
The bottle sent to the WDRB Newsroom is getting a lot of interest and a lot of sniffs. Most of us agree that it doesn't really smell like fried chicken.
