A $3000 Kentucky Fried Surfboard?!
KFC leaps out of the fryer and into into the brine! Colonel Sanders surfboards and Kentucky scented wax, inside.
Surfing is so hot and spicy right now!
Non-endemic brands are backpaddling at the chance to get a little wax between their toes, and sand crammed in their ears right now.
Adidas is sliding onto the soles of surfers. And Tesla’s cornered the absurdly rich surfing 1-percenters. But never would I ever have expected the likes of the artery clogging dirty bird to slide their greasy fingers all over our precious little surf scene!
But I’ve been proven wrong; Kentucky Fried Chicken is dropping a clothing and surf range (of sorts) as of tomorrow.
Do you fancy some spiced-poultry-scented surf wax?
A fresh pair of KFC coordinated budgie smugglers?
Or if you’re quite cashed up and into collectable one time only offers, a ‘Harland’ surfboard decorated with the Colonel’s very own face; it’ll only set you back a cool $3000 bones!
In addition to this set of surf-oriented paraphernalia, KFC’s also designed a range of clothes and accessories all adorned with the bird’s trademark style: “fingerlickingood” necklaces, “nug life” trackies, and even a pair of chip printed socks!
KFC however isn’t looking to invest in surf for the longterm, in fact, this range of limited edition items is a one time offer with all proceeds going to a good cause.
The range is part of KFC’s Youth Foundation and their month-long fundraiser initiative. 100 percent of the profit will be going straight to youth foundations around Australia such as Youngcare, Streetwork, and ReachOut.
So if you feel like inhaling the aroma of a greasy spiced chicken wing next time you wax up, or are in the market for a new board altogether, then head over to the KFC site tomorrow at midday with your credit card in hand.
And if you miss out, then you can always try and track down this long lost four-foot craft glowing with the Colonel’s grin from the 70’s.
