This is quite funny. In fact we don’t know what’s funnier, KFC’s new AI powered Colonel Sanders or the seeming reality that there’s a National Fried Chicken Day in the US* (July 6).
We have our Pride weekend, they have National Fried Chicken: take your choice.
Anyway Wieden+Kennedy and Funny Or Die have teamed to launch H.A.R.L.A.N.D, aka Human Assisted Robotic Linguistic Animatronic Networked Device.
The trouble with jokes about technology is that they will be reality in a short time. And nobody, like the KFC server above, will have a job.
But at least it’s brought jokes back into advertising.
*I see that my friend George Parker, originally a native of Lancashire, is promoting “National Tripe Day” in Adscam. Now that’s more like it.
