Kentucky Fried Chicken has issued their latest reality TV challenge.
The President of KFC has written an open letter to American Idol
finalist Sanjaya Malakar offering him a lifetime supply of KFC Famous
Bowls if he will sport a bowl cut during one of his upcoming American
Idol performances. In addition, KFC says they will make a charitable
contribution in his name.
Here is the open letter from KFC’s president to Sanjaya Malakar. “Congratulations on catching America’s ears,and eyes. Over the past month, you’ve wowed the world with your original performances. And, your ever-changing hairdos have made you almost as famous as KFC® Original Recipe® Chicken and Colonel Sanders himself.
On behalf of Kentucky Fried Chicken®, I want to serve up to you a tasty offer. If you don a bowl hairdo during one of your next nationally televised performances, KFC will grant you a free lifetime supply of KFC Famous Bowls®. We’re sure America will be as ‘bowled-over’ by your take on this classic look as they are by our KFC Famous Bowls.
From wavy to Mohawk to now the classic bowl – who knows, your bowl cut could start a trend as big as KFC Famous Bowls, which consumers ranked as THE most memorable new product of 2006.
In addition to free KFC Famous Bowls for life – if you sport a bowl cut, KFC will cut a check in your name to Colonel’s Scholars, a charity providing young people with much needed college scholarships. We’re confident that helping students afford college is something that even the toughest of judges would stand and applaud.” – Your Fan, Gregg Dedrick, President of KFC.
