I Want a Failure Pile in a Sadness Bowl

Monday, September 10, 2007

Methinks KFC was a little tweaked by Patton Oswalt's riff on it's "Famous Bowls." I can't watch the commercials showing the graphic layering of mashed potatoes, corn, chicken nuggets, etc., without throwing up a little bit in my mouth. KFC's newest commercials, though, are clearly a marketing wizard's attempt at damage control, now that Patton Oswalt's shot across their bow has gone viral. You know the ones. They show a woman sitting at her desk, eating her lunch like a proper lady. Or as the folks on the Commercials I Hate Forum put it:

The way the woman explains it is just annoying.
"I'm eating KFC's extra crispy chicken, which actually requires a fork and a knife."
Who talks like that?

Who talks like that? Only a company that's afraid of being perceived as being on the slippery slope to a "lunch gun."

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Patton Oswalt!

Apparently, Maryscott O'Connor is now publishing people's real names--without their consent--on her website.

Interesting trend. I wonder who else's real names will be revealed on the Internets?
