Having spent roughly 50 hours watching college basketball over the past four days, I’ve certainly seen my share of chicken-sandwich commercials–not to mention the promo for the second-last episode of How I Met Your Mother, which airs tonight!!!! (Does CBS not have any other shows or something?) Let’s just say at this point, I can’t even sit through the Wendy’s Asiago Ranch Chicken sandwich ad anymore without screaming. A chicken sandwich telling jokes and riding a motorcycle? I hope that bike crashes into a ditch.
On the other hand, the ad for KFC’s Big Boss is absolutely inspiring. Set to the tune of the overplayed Twisted Sister classic “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” the 30-second spot tells the epic tale of four people who quit their jobs…so they can eat a sandwich that looks exactly like a Big Mac, but with chicken. (I’m pretty sure you can see some sorta McDonald’s copyright in the fine print at the end if you look closely. Yes, I’ve watched this commercial that many times.) Suffice to say that after slipping on some tattered spandex and rocking out a mean guitar solo, I headed down to my nearest Kentucky Fried Chicken for this:
Did I mention that this sandwich is basically a Big Mac, but with chicken? You’ve got onions, pickles, lettuce, cheese all on a sesame-seed bun. It even has special sauce–some sort of Russian dressing. That said, this could be the best sandwich KFC has ever stolen from a leading fast-food chain. It might even be better than the Zinger Double Down!
And of course, I had to get the KFC poutine, which adds its thick, salty gravy to its thick, crunchy fries. This thing probably has about a bazillion calories…but hey, at least they use real cheese curds.
Put it this way: my heart still feels like it’s about to explode, and ate this for lunch…yesterday. KFC FTW!!!!
