Few things in the world of fast food are held more sacred then a freebie. Turn that dial up to 365 days of freebies and, well, best of luck dealing. To mark National Fried Chicken Day (Friday 6th July) in Australia, chicken-champs KFC are hosting their inaugural “Chicken Cheque” competition, which grants an all-access pass to one lucky winner giving them access to one entire year of free KFC. FREE KFC.
The competition is open to Australians only and being run via KFC Australia’s Facebook page (which you can find here). It’s up to the entrant to let the Colonel know why either themselves or a nominated chicken lover deserves the “Chicken Cheque”, so get your creative juices flowing and take your best anecdote over to their comment section. Make sure your commenting on their National Fried Chicken Day post though.
“National Fried Chicken Day is quite obviously one of our favourite calendar dates, so we wanted to do something special [for] not only the joy of fried chicken but the people who adore KFC the most”, said CMO of KFC Australia Angela Richards. We’re looking for hilarious stories, whacky anecdotes and huge displays of immense love for KFC tasty fried chicken to help us choose our overall winner. The bigger and bolder the story, the better”.
We’re not quite sure if that includes the entire menu of KFC, but we’re making the educated guess that the entirety of KFC’s options will be at your disposal for an entire year. And holy fuck that’s a very valuable ticket to have. Sure, you might roll into 2019 and likely break the scales, but on the other hand, free KFC for 365 days. You’ll definitely have some long-lost cousins getting in touch, and might find your social circle growing just as much as your waistline.
The winner will be drawn this Friday, 6 July on National Fried Chicken Day and announced on KFC Australia’s Facebook page.
