Fried chicken. It's one of the greasiest, crunchiest most luxurious foods out there, which explains why KFC has such a huge following. So much so, that the brand is now on the search for the world's biggest superfan.
We all love a good K-fry but the brand has decided to seed out the weak from the dedicated to find the world's biggest Kentucky Fried Chicken superfan.
The announcement comes as a celebration of National Fried Chicken Day (6th of July) and according to KFC, they are looking for:
The biggest chicken eatin', wing slingin', gravy dippin' fan - a true chicken champion worthy.
Are you KFC's biggest superfan?
Whoever wins the competition will be the first person to feature in the new KFC Hall of Fame which will feature only 'those who have gone above and beyond to profess their devotion to fried chicken.' In the announcement of their search, KFC wrote:
Have you ever penned a letter of love to the red, white and gold(en drumsticks)? Did your heart break when KFC closed its doors during lockdown...only to drown your sorrows in some (questionable) homemade fried chicken? Or maybe you've even collected every KFC artefact since the first UK restaurant opened its doors in 1965? If this is you, we want to know.
Now, here's the real motivation. Not only will the winner of the competition be the first to be inaugurated into the Hall of Fame but they will also receive a year's supply of fried chicken to indulge in whenever the mood takes their fancy. And, they will also receive a customised bucket with their face on it, the holy grail of fried chicken monuments.
Here's how to enter:
to enter all you need to do is post your application to KFC UK's Facebook and publicly announce your deep unwaning love for the 11 secret herbs and spices.
In the Colonel's eyes, 'no entry is too big or too small' but, the idea is to get as creative as possible in your submission whether that's a poem, a video submission, or taking out a space in the newspaper.
Even better, make a mini-movie, post a giant billboard or walk around town in a giant fried chicken costume, that'll definitely get some attention. But you better get in quick because submissions close on the 12th of July!
There's no better time to pull out all the stops with public humiliation. After all, a year's with of KFC could be at stake.
