1978 Kentucky Fried Chicken Commercial…

One of the reasons I started this little blog is my love of old commercials. I like the toy commercials and some for cars or old movie trailers but the ones that always really take me back are the fast food commercials. This Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial features all that was great in olden days advertising – over eager employees, bratty kids, a perplexed mother and a catchy jingle. Let us watch this commercial and remember back to simpler times…

I don’t what is the best of the ad..the kids I could barely understand gurgling something about wanting crispy chicken, the Mom looking pained about the situation or the employee actually looking like she gave a damn who Becky or Sally or whatever the other kid’s name was..it was great! I also liked the part at the end where the twins are chowing down in the back on their undeserved chicken and Mom sits in the front driving them home looking relieved. Maybe her husband would beat her if the kids didn’t get the exact chicken the demanded? Who knows? The 1970’s were a strange time..
