He's like the guy in that Just Shoot Me episode.  The guy in Just Shoot Me plays a retard.  Well, actually, he plays a guy pretending to be a retard.  I don't know what the character in the KFC commercial's excuse is supposed to be.

^ Classic.  Now I'm gonna have to watch that episode. 

As far as the commercial, Douchebag McGee needs to shut his damn potpie hole.

I don't even think anyone I know would be that enthusiastic if the potpie had actual POT in it.

Well, after seeing this commercial I'm not exactly sure how I'd #howdoyouKFC, but if it makes me anything like this guy, I think I'd better bring along a gun to off myself with before I actually do it.

I want to rage quit life after seeing this ad. STOP TRYING SO f**kING HARD KFC. We get it, you're hurting for revenue because people tend to equate KFC with family chicken buckets and dinner but you're not satisfied with that, you need a piece of that lucrative lunch pie too. It's lazy advertising when your entire ad consists of shouting your product over and over because you think your audience is too stupid to get it otherwise.

HEY DO YOU THINK THEY GET IT THAT WE CARRY POT PIES YET?! PEOPLE LOVE POT PIES FOR LUNCH RIGHT? NO? OH WELL!


It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Our KFC's have had Pot Pies for at least 5 years. I've had them a couple times they are actually pretty good but their new commercials are terrible. 

They had another commercial where they kept repeating "I didn't know KFC was open for lunch" like seriously, who the f*** didn't know that?!

Just one more of this HASHTAG HOW DO YOU KFC? HASHTAG YOLO craze that KFC has started to try and run with.

The office twit (see another thread here) and the two chicks video blogging their lunch are equally as bad.

I remember when I first saw one of this series of commercials. It was some chick gushing over how she just found out KFC has lunch....

Seriously? Who the F*$& on Earth was choosing not to go to KFC for lunch because they thought it wasn't open?

Are there even any fast food places that AREN'T open for lunch?

If people aren't going to KFC for lunch its not because they don't know if its open or not, its because they think the food is sh*t lol

This #howdoyoukfc campaign is particularly bad... The fake enthusiasm is cringeworthy in each one.

The family dinner one pissed me off the most with the passive husband essentially saying "yeah we eat rice cakes covered in sh*t some nights because my lazy fat wife is too stupid to understand the concept of dinner and I'm ok with that." Get a f**king life and learn to cook yourself a steak goddammit.

The one with the 2 teen girls video blogging just came off as highly unrealistic... all of them are guilty of trying too hard to come off as real but this one was the worst. I just felt like these girls were lying to me the whole time.

The pot pie commercial makes a great mini drinking game actually.

I watched this with my speakers on mute and I could still see each time he said "POT PIIIIE". I don't think I've ever been as excited as he is about anything that a fast food place sells. I'll admit though, if places started selling good Monte Cristos, I'd probably be that excited, lol.

Seriously, this guy acts like a mental case. I don't know what it would take for me to be that enthusiastic about a pot-pie. Maybe if it was laced with cocaine or something. Maybe that's included in their secret herbs and spices, huh?

No, ₤ is a pound sign.

That's a hash or number-sign...or a tic-tac-toe.

In the US, # is the symbol for either "number" or "pound".

It's weird, though, my mother and I learned from the same English books, and in both cases were taught "Hash/Number"

Maybe the nuns that taught her were brits in disguise...

Though, in the 70's/80's, when she was working at an editing company, they also required it be called a hash.

Yeah...these commercials are a huge dumpster fire. They make me want to run from the room screaming but I can't seem to stop looking at the horror show in front of me. This pot-pie guy is so phony I can't stand it. I picture myself in the next cubicle trying earnestly to complete my work with this yo-yo demanding my attention to his Tuesday lunch choice. There's another in this campaign where the girl seems super surprised that KFC serves lunch...??? It's fast food, genius...they probably serve lunch.
