  • KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    There’s something about the idea of fried chicken visually resembling explosive combustion that isn’t exactly appetizing to me, personally. But far be it for me to second-guess the latest ad campaign from KFC and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, especially since this KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop campaign is probably one of the least bizarre […]

    McDonald’s x Uniqlo Big Mac 50th Anniversary T-Shirts

  • White Castle Impossible Sliders Coming Soon

    White Castle Impossible Sliders Coming Soon

    If you had asked me to guess which major fast food burger chains would be the first to adopt meatless Impossible Burgers for its menu, I probably would not have said White Castle. But it just goes to show, you never can tell, and now White Castle Impossible Sliders are reported to be coming soon. […]

    ‘We Beefin?': A Mixtape from Wendy’s (Audio)

    You might be unaware of this, but fast food burger chain Wendy’s has cultivated a certain social media persona based largely on insulting its competitors and even sometimes its own customers. That’s the important but probably not vital context for We Beefin?, a very real hip hop mixtape put out by the restaurant. Wendy’s is not […]

    National Burrito Day Means Free Food

    Today, apparently, is National Burrito Day. That means above all that you should go out and eat a burrito, even if none of the promotions I’m going to list here are available to you. It also means free content for content peddlers like myself, but that’s more of an inside-baseball observation than something relevant to […]

    We all know the fast food industry is going through a rough patch right now. People are looking for more from their food than just empty calories, and the big chains have resorted to all manner of promotional stunts in order to get some free viral publicity. But every once in a while they come […]
