“At no point should these commercials depict persons willfully placing KFC items anywhere within the designated ‘eating zone,'” said Copps, referring to the federally defined area extending in an 8-inch radius around the mouth. “Nor should individuals be seen manipulating the chicken in a manner that may bring it into contact with their lower facial region, or the lower facial region of a child or companion animal. In fact, children under the age of 8 are not allowed to appear in the ads in any form.”
– The Onion imagines a world where KFC is no longer to use the word “eat” in their ads thanks to the FCC. In all seriousness, fast food commercials would look a lot different if regulators were as strict with advertisers as they are filmmakers. Also, did you see these “Unthink” TV spots they recently did where a dancing lady wildly waves some drumsticks in the air? The tagline: “It’s time unthink how you got your grill on?” Heh.
