Oprah Offers to Feed America

KFC and Oprah have teamed up to give away coupons for a free meal from KFC that includes 2 pieces of KFC’s new Kentucky Grilled Chicken, 2 sides, and a biscuit. Tickets can be printed out at unthinkfc.com until 11:59 p.m tonight, Wednesday May 16th. The coupons can be used until May 19th (The coupons can’t be used on Mother’s Day. Sorry to those of you planning on “treating” Mom to a KFC dinner.)

Who better to promote your product than one of America’s most influential people of 2009, Oprah. I don’t know a single stay-at-home mom that doesn’t religiously follow Oprah’s every command.

The promotion appears to be working. Twitterers have been tweeting about the long lines and other troubles at the fast food restaurant. It seems that people are even rioting and staging sit-ins because some stores were refusing to let people use coupons. I guess KFC underestimated the power of Oprah and they were unprepared for such large crowds of hungry Americans.

I printed out two coupons from my computer yesterday. Apparently you can only print up to 4 coupons per computer. I haven’t made it to a KFC yet to witness the madness, but I definitely plan on making a trip.

    I read an article about the sit-in protests at a KFC in New York and could not stop laughing! I guess that KFC ran out of the free meals by 2 p.m. Wow, it seems that Americans will do anything for a free meal! haha
