KFC Just Gave Away 3,000 Bottles of Fried Chicken-Scented Sunblock

In one of the odder marketing ideas, KFC gave away 3,000 bottles of SPF 30 Extra Crispy fried chicken-scented sunscreen yesterday.

Since they were giving them out online to the first 3,000 people who filled out the request form, they were out in very short order (you can find out more at the giveaway website here).

It seems a weird thing to put out a product that helps prevent burning flesh and have it smell like what is essentially burnt flesh, then again it seemed a strange thing to have a literal extra-crispy Colonel for the summer.

Here's the infomercial-like video they put together for the promotion:
