Yeah I'm not understanding that one either. "Hmm not a fan of their pizza, wait they added small over processed hot dogs and a dipping sauce, fuck that I'm in" I have never once been in the mood for delivery/take out pizza and halfway through my first slice got a jonesing for some Oscar Meyer. At some point I think Fast Food ads should have to have an accompanying PSA:
In light of the legalization of marijuana in some states and the general easement of judicial retribution in others, we would like you to consider this following ad. For those of you without a drug enhanced palate, feel free to change to the channel"
I remember I had just changed jobs when the KFC bowls came out the first time. This snot nosed kid really sitting around with a bunch of people I thought were intimidating and where I wanted to be at, at the risk of being an elistist sno, they had the cars and the apartments and the wages I wanted and hoped for. In days of leniency and cutbacks they had three martini luncheon expense accounts and bespoke suits and when it came time to pick a place fo lunch imagine my surprise when they all were talking up the new KFC bowl. Until the one assistant, probably in her fifties, probably could have done all our jobs at the same time and have time to do her own work, probably unfairly passed over for these arrogant bullshitters. Snorts and utters "scraps" its nothing but scraps. Like right before they pushed all the leftovers into a bowl and set on the floor for Fido they thought "could I actually sell that?" thank god for Emmy because we never went to KFC for lunch. Ever.
And my parents probably were too young to remember much of the time, And it was before me no doubt, but did I watch too much Mad Men when the first of the Darrell Hammond KFC ads come out or did/does anyone else get a kind of Southern Discomfort vibe from the ones with the nostalgia tinting? I keep waiting for flashes of dogs attacking peaceful civil rights protestors and the Klan in full garb. Maybe we need to add a thread entitled Unintended Consequences : Not Where You intended me to go.
And this is not getting any work done, though the offices are all empty (apparently everyone decided to hit the weekend early and forgot to tell me) and my alternative is watching planes land in the distance, but exactly what are they going with there in regards to Hammond? It doesn't seem nostalgic so much a jeering. But how is that going to evoke Colonel laden memories of finger lickin good? Our Icon's a big fat joke, come eat here anyway.
