KFC Nuggets Are Served with Patriotism

In early October, KFC introduced an advertising campaign in mainland China celebrating 40 years of “reform and opening up,” the catchphrase that defined the era.

A two-minute TV spot that aired on state television showed two Chinese celebrities traveling back in time by railway, seeing streets filled with bicycles and bamboo scaffolding.

“Who would have thought that the past 40 years would bring so much change?” one of the stars, the 44-year-old actor Huang Bo, says to Lu Han, a 28-year-old Chinese heartthrob. The TV spot concludes with a voice-over “saluting” China’s 40th anniversary of economic reform and a cheer of “Go, China!”
