Lucky (or unlucky, depending on your point of view) diners at a KFC restaurant in New York will be transported back to the 80s with free bowl haircuts in-store as part of a promotion for the chicken chain’s new Famous Bowl range.
The Famous Bowl – which retails for $US3 and isn’t available in Aussie stores – comes with mashed potato, sweetcorn, fried chicken, cheese and gravy.
And the cheap lunch aside, diners can also walk away with a stylish 80s bowl ‘do from in-store hairstylists that KFC is describing as “stylish, modern-day takes on the bowl cut hair style”.
Sadly, the promotion runs today only at KFC’s Brooklyn restaurant and participants will receive a gift card for the KFC Famous Bowl and be photographed with their new bowl cut.
Andrea Zahumensky, KFC’s US CMO, said: “I can’t believe we are actually selling a pound of delicious food for just $3 and I also can’t believe bowl cuts are making a comeback, but here we are. So, naturally, we’re offering KFC-ified Famous Bowl cuts to anyone who wants to be as famous as our Famous Bowls.”
