KFC Is Making Edible Nail Polish, Yes You Read That Right

KFC tries to embody their slogan “Finger Licking Good,” but is their newest stunt taking the phrase a little too far? Today we learned from the fast food restaurants’ advertiser Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong that the Colonel would be selling edible nail polish. From AdWeek:

Ogilvy & Mather worked with food technologists at McCormick, the spice company that provides KFC’s secret mix of 11 secret herbs and spices, to crate the nail polishes for KFC Hong Kong. The polish flavors are sourced from natural ingredients and based on the brand’s two favorite recipes, Original and Hot & Spicy.

KFC is asking their fans to choose between the two flavors “Hot & Spicy” or “Original Recipe on their Chinese Facebook page. It’s certainly an interesting ad campaign and we’re big fans of companies doing weird stuff to draw attention to their product.

Personally, I’m awful when it comes to biting my nails so I’ll be staying far away from this. But if this nail polish means that more people will be putting their fingers in their mouths, count me onboard.

And yes, they even made a music video to promote the idea.
