KFC launches Zinger Mozzarella Burger with 1989 inspired ad

KFC Australia has launched a new Zinger Mozzarella Burger with the slogan ‘a burger for adults’.

The 30 second commercial opens with a scene “somewhere in Australia 1989” as a child puts on lipstick to Blondie’s One Way or Another as she tries to be an adult by getting a tattoo and join a skate group.

The ad then cuts to the girl all grown up and eating a Zinger Mozzarella Burger.

A six second clip of the ad has also been made which shows the woman eating the cheesy burger.

Ogilvy Sydney is KFC’s creative agency of record.

The fast food chain has also extended its ‘shut up and take my money’ campaign to promote its 15 wings for $10 offer.

The one minute ad shows three taxi drivers waiting for a customer as one of them sees the promotion in a magazine, exclaiming “shut up and take my money”.

A woman then walks out to the taxi rank to find the cab drivers all in one car eating the chicken wings a dancing.

The woman presses her face up against the window, fogging up the windscreen as she begins to tap on the door wanting some chicken.
