I can’t believe the Birthday of Colonel Sanders is being completely overlooked here in Australia.  Not a mention of it at KFC.com.au.  Not one.  September the 9th is an important day in the world of fast-food and secret herbs and spices.  Thankfully, the Japanese are doing their bit to celebrate.

This is their website:

There’s three “BIG” “thank you” elements to this birthday campaign.

  1. Firstly, 30% off EVERYTHING!  What? Sign me up.
  2. Secondly, A moon festival treat.
  3. And finally, you could win – a “saliva inducing” – “lifelike-plastic” 3 dimensional KFC Chicken piece.

We’re not talking useless chicken piece either.  We’re talking every-day useable or wearable. Check these out:

Yes, that’s a keyboard with KFC Chicken pieces all over the keys – what other letters do you need besides K, F & C?

KFC Wearables!  Diamonds are a girls best friend? not any more – walk right past Tiffany & Co and into KFC for these “gems”!
