Yep that happened.
A human sized Kentucky Fried Chicken drumstick jumped from the troposphere to the earth’s crust in a stunning 200 kilometre an hour descent.
The adrenaline pumping five minute high speed stunt was commissioned to celebrate the arrival of KFC on the Uber Eats platform in Australia.
The parachuting poultry started the delivery from more than four thousand metres above sea level and took the scenic way down – breezing above some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks including the MCG, The Yarra River and Federation Square before safely finding the bullseye inside a six-metre tall Uber Eats bag.
“We know from thousands of searches on our app that the desire for KFC has been sky high for some time. Now that KFC has landed on Uber Eats we wanted to tell that story in an impactful, distinct and memorable way. It might not fly into your bag, but KFC’s favourites are now available to get in a few clicks on the Uber Eats app in every state and territory,” said General Manager Uber Eats, ANZ, Bec Nyst.
“It’s no secret that Aussies love having convenient ways to get their favourite food delivered, so we’re pretty excited that KFC has finally landed on Uber Eats,” said Sally Spriggs, CMO KFC Australia. ”We’re always up for a bit of fun, so what better way to make some noise about this new partnership than having a huge Kentucky Fried Chicken drumstick jump out of a plane and land into a giant Uber Eats bag? Just like us, I’m sure fans will have a bit of chuckle about this, and we’re thrilled that more people will be able to get KFC delivered fresh and fast with just a few taps on the Uber Eats app.”
There are more than 500 KFC restaurants visible across the country on the Uber Eats app and Australians have even more convenience at their fingertips with another way for fans to access delicious Kentucky Fried Chicken from their own home.
