KFC pauses finger-lickin’ good ads

March 14, 2020

After more than 160 people lodged official complaints to a UK advertising watchdog, KFC decided to put their ads that make reference to their famous slogan “it’s finger-lickin’ good” on hold. According to the complainants, the ads are encouraging people to lick their fingers, which is a big no-no in the fight against the further spread against the coronavirus. Although it is only KFC’s UK division that decided to pull these ads, it is rumoured that the entire global division is considering halting similar KFC ads.
