Protect Your Skin and Smell Like Fried Chicken with KFC’s New Sunscreen

KFC

Have you ever thought of laying out on a beach, lathered up with sunscreen that smells like you just rolled around in a vat of greasy, fried chicken? Well, you’re in luck, because fried-chicken scented sunscreen exists.

No, this is not a joke. KFC “Extra Crispy” Sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, but it will also make you really, really hungry.

KFC officials said that 3,000 bottles were snatched up in under two hours on Monday. People apparently went crazy over it. That’s a lot of people walking around smelling like fried chicken.

You may have noticed commercials featuring an “extra crispy” Colonel Sanders on television lately. The 30-SPF aligns with the chain’s current summer campaign.

The ad for sunscreen is admittedly hilarious and offers an important warning: “It’s real, and also, do not eat it.” Do not, we repeat, do not walk around in public licking your (or other’s) arms. People will look at you like you’re crazy … and they might call the cops.

KFC’s Facebook page is flooded with disappointed people who were unable to get their hands on a bottle. No word on when (or if) KFC sunscreen will be back in stock or whether it actually smells like a bucket of fried chicken.
