Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai brings Colonel Sanders back to China with freshly ground coffee

KFC_coffee_NEWCUP.jpegKFC started serving freshly ground coffee across the country last year, but people didn't believe KFC was truly serious about coffee.

For KFC's 30th anniversary, Wieden+Kennedy Shanghai brought Colonel Sanders back to China with freshly ground coffee and a Kentucky bluegrass musical that hijacked one of China's most recognizable folk songs.

KFC_kv_arrival.jpgKFC_kv_trans-4.jpgW+K redesigned KFC's coffee cups, which are now available in 4600+ stores, did in-store takeovers, and even created chicken-drumstick stirrers for the coffee. Highly graphic OOH supported the campaign explaining how the Colonel was so busy with his coffee that his chickens were getting jealous.
