“Chicken in a fuckbag” update

Looks like I wasn’t the only person who noted the sheer head-exploding inappropriateness of KFC’s Battlestar Galacta tie-in Frak Pak Sweepstakes. Because this week it has morphed into what the announcer describes as the “can’t say that word on TV sweepstakes,” as this graphic appears:

I’m guessing this is the work of an ad agency that didn’t really understand what it was doing in the first place, and is now trying to use “humor” (complete with waggle-finger air quotes) to cover their fuckup. Or frakup, as the case may be. The problem with this follow up is, well — those of you who watch the show, or have followed the link to my previous post are way ahead of me here I’m sure — you CAN say the word on tv. That’s the point of the entirely made-up word — to serve as a stand-in for the word you can’t say on TV.


…. except can you really signal the end of a geekout with fake html?
