KFC UK Advert Leaves Bitter Beirut Taste

Once again, a thank you to Sarah for flagging this advert from KFC in the UK:

So here’s the important part:

A dad is sitting at a KFC restaurant with his son and daughter, who are both busy with their phones. The dad tries to have a conversation with them:

What should we do this afternoon? Cinema? Bowling!

After failing to even get eye contact, the dad decides to raise the stakes:

Move to Beirut? Rob a bank? I give up!

The dad’s final suggestions failed to elicit a response from his kids but it hasn’t failed to flood YouTube comments with “colorful” language from upset Lebanese. This is one of those implicit “looks like Beirut” comments so I’ll be sending a certificate to KFC’s head operations in the UK.
