Where’s the beef? KFC stays faithful to its first love, chicken, on Valentine’s Day

KFC France announced the launch of a new product, the Beef Bucket, earlier this month, causing social media outrage among its loyal followers. A couple even started petitions to stop the lunacy.

Today, on Valentine’s Day, KFC reveals that the Colonel had only been flirting with beef; chicken is his one true love. This film by Sid Lee Paris shows a Beef Bucket exploding in slow motion, putting an end to the KFC love triangle.

It makes a change from the soppy ads we usually see on Valentine’s Day.
