The buzz: KFC and fostering

The new KFC ad, created by Bartle Bogle Hegarty, has prompted debate on social media. It features a child who has just been fostered by a new family. Some commentators praised the spot for presenting fostering in a positive light, while others were unhappy that the company was using a sensitive subject to sell fast food.

Thank you @kfc for showing a positive  & moving story of fostering/adoption in your ‘50 years of family’ campaign...it matters. @Home4Gd

Why have KFC got a better advert for fostering than Bernardos or the government?

The KFC advert about the kid being adopted and finding a new family is too deep just to promote a bargain bucket
