Clever KFC Ads Perfectly Replaced Fire With Spicy Fried Chicken
The best print ads often make you look twice. A perfect example? This campaign for KFC Hot and Spicy out of Hong Kong.
In a clever and well executed set of ads, Ogilvy Hong Kong replaces fire in photography—shots of the Space Shuttle, a rocket-powered race car and a group of Power Ranger stand-ins—with blown-up (in more ways than one) images of spicy fried chicken.
There’s not much to the concept, spotlighted by Campaign Brief Asia, but in this case that’s a good thing. Once you get the concept, you get the concept and can just sit back and appreciate the craft.
