Fuck The Governors Ball! Let’s Go To KFC!

Fuck The Governors Ball! Let's Go To KFC!

ONTD posted this, which is apparently not a joke (but is also one at the same time):

February 21, 2008

An open letter to all Sunday night nominees:
Your performances truly lit up the big screen this year. And, all of you – from actors and actresses to screenwriters and directors – have created your own “Original Recipes” for success, much like our founder Colonel Sanders did more than 65 years ago.

Similar to which designer you’ll chose and who you’ll escort down the red carpet, we know a “bucketful” of star-studded options abound for post-award show celebrations Sunday night. But, this year, KFC’s cooked up an after-party invite too good to skip.

On behalf of Kentucky Fried Chicken, I’d like to invite you to a Toasted “Wrap” party that will support a great cause and debut our hottest new menu item – the all new KFC Toasted Wrap.

The first award winner to visit the KFC closest to the theatre will receive a year’s supply of KFC Toasted Wraps and a $5,000 donation to the charity of his or her choice. Now, that’s an achievement worth applauding.

While most after parties focus on “seeing and being seen,” at KFC, in our tradition of southern hospitality, we want to offer you some “toast-worthy” home-style cooking and the opportunity to help a cause dear to your heart. All you have to do is be the first to bring in your winning statuette and come celebrate your amazing achievement at our KFC restaurant located only a mile from the award ceremony at 1357 N. Pine St. in Los Angeles.

Break a leg Sunday night and I hope you stop by our Toasted Wrap party to do some finger lickin’ good for a great charity cause (no acceptance speech needed).

Your Fan,

Gregg Dedrick
President of KFC

Just stop for a minute and picture Daniel Day-Lewis or Javier Bardem (for extra hilarity, imagine them as their Blood & Country characters) walking into a KFC and ordering a toasted wrap.

And, seriously, $5,000? Up the ante, Col. Sanders. You probably make that daily at any Mississippi location.
