KFC Hot & Crispy : Feel the Heat

 TV   SOUTH AFRICA    August 13, 2019 20:24
https://www.bestadsontv.com/includes/image.php?image=s3%3A%2F%2Fbestadsontv.com%2Fthumbs%2Fafc54_0002.png&width=200KFC South Africa wanted to launch their most significant innovation in more than 50 years on our country - a new Hot and Crispy flavour that was their first alternative to their world famous Original Recipe Chicken. The reactions people have to hot food - perspiration, tugging at collars and flushed faces - can easily be misconstrued as signs of guilt. So Ogilvy, Cape Town, created Detective Duma, a private eye hell bent on figuring out where the heat was coming from. The ad follows his search for the truth, wherever it may lead him.

What many do not realise is it is psychologically also a life sentence for the victim who has to constantly relive the ordeal. It is only through counselling that victims can free their minds and escape the mental prison they have been incarcerated in. With one in four women falling victim to rape in South African, it is a very mainstream problem. Thus, this campaign was launched in mainstream newspaper media. Agency: Joe Public
