Foghorn Leghorn for Kentucky Fried Chicken

When I first saw these Foghorn Leghorn commercials for KFC when I was younger, I was immediately put off by the whole thing. Why would he encourage us to eat chicken? Shouldn’t he want us to go eat hamburgers? Now I find this dissonance endearing…see what age will do for you.

  1. I remember an old McDonald’s commercial on which the hamburgers had faces and acted like they loved to be eaten. I always thought their enthusiasm for being eaten was rather strange.
