It feels like every day now brings a new weird thing plastered with the face of Colonel Sanders, expressly designed to get as much free ad space as possible. It’s all part of the cyclical, relentless nature of the internet, which is why the KFC Internet Escape Pod seems so appealing.
The KFC Internet Escape Pod is a WiFi-blocking cage that will allow you and up to three friends to forcibly escape the omnipresent siren of social media and Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotions with a bucket of KFC chicken. Here’s KFC‘s director of advertising George Felix on why this, and why now:
“We’ve come up with several technologically advanced, creative experiences for our customers and fans this year. But even we feel the burden of technology during the holiday season. So we decided to go in the opposite direction and create an anti-technology product, using technology, to help one lucky buyer literally escape the holiday chaos.”
That one lucky buyer will have to pony up ten grand, and there’s only one KFC Internet Escape Pod in existence, so if you plan to hole up in one this holiday season you better place your order at the KFC Ltd. online store here sooner rather than later. It may be the only way to avoid learning about KFC’s next promotional stunt.
