We don’t know why KFC’s apparently official — and very real — training virtual reality game is as haunting as it is. We don’t know why it has a disgusting coughing Colonel Sanders threatening you with a lifetime of imprisonment in his unholy basement lair if you cannot properly fry his chicken. We only know it is here, and is legitimately surreal to witness. Damn.
The game has a strangely haunting vibe to it, and I’m wondering how effective is it at actually teaching people how to make the Colonel’s chicken. Is the game meant to appeal to teenage workers whose brains are filled with Bioshock and Portal — two moody games that this weirdly dystopian chicken journey seems based on. How realistic are these terrifying chicken pieces? Do you feel comfortable eating chicken that seemingly was created and taught in a Playstation 4 game? I dunno. But next time you bite into the Colonel’s original recipe, just imagine the dystopian hellscape walked through to make it.
What do you think of the colonel’s chicken video game? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
