Explore KFC's daring new ad: chicken cult meets dark humor in a cinematic blend of 28 Days Later and Stranger Things vibes.


In a bold and captivating move, KFC has blended the eerie vibes of 28 Days Later with the nostalgic charm of Stranger Things to create a campaign that's turning heads. This new ad represents a shift for the fast-food giant, diving into dark humor and sharp social commentary that hits just the right note, marking a fresh and creative era for the brand.

Gone are the days of the ubiquitous 'Finger Lickin' Good' slogan. Instead, KFC is making waves with a campaign designed to make us believe in its chicken like never before. After a week of cryptic, unbranded billboards, the big reveal has arrived, and it's anything but conventional.

A Dark and Humorous Take

The new short film cleverly addresses contemporary issues, from the rise of AI to widespread political discontent. This isn't just an ad; it's a satirical look at the world today, wrapped in a thrilling narrative. By drawing inspiration from the 2002 horror film 28 Days Later and Netflix's Stranger Things, KFC has crafted a story that feels both familiar and refreshingly unique.

The Chicken Cult Phenomenon

At the heart of this campaign lies a cult-like obsession with KFC's chicken. It's a daring approach, especially in an industry that typically avoids highlighting the animals behind the food. Yet, KFC manages to strike a balance, presenting its chicken as the centerpiece of a story that's as magnetic as it is macabre.

A Soundtrack to Remember

A key element that ties the ad together is its pulsating soundtrack. The music is infectious, driving the protagonists to move in ways that feel natural and engaging, steering clear of the usual cheesiness found in fast-food commercials. It's a beat that not only enhances the narrative but also keeps viewers hooked from start to finish.

A New Favorite

This campaign is a testament to KFC's innovative spirit. By merging horror and humor, and tackling real-world issues with a creative twist, KFC has not only redefined its brand image but also solidified its spot as a favorite in the fast-food world. So, the next time you're thinking of where to grab a bite, remember the chicken cult – and prepare to be intrigued.

With this new direction, KFC isn't just serving chicken; it's serving a whole new experience. And we’re here for it.
