An angry tweet from an enraged customer is the tag to a clever new campaign promoting KFC’s often maligned fries.
The tweet read: “Dear KFC, No one likes your fries. Yours sincerely, The Entire World”.

The tweet first appeared via an unknown chap who goes by the username “Upgrade”.
Soon, other tweeters were jumping on the anti-KFC chip crusade.
Even KFC’s competitor Burger King was soon in on the action, too.
But the chicken chain’s London agency Mother soon turned the hatred into a campaign to promote the new fry that is reportedly “chunkier, tastier and better”.
