Getting Even More Intimate with the Double Down
April 22nd, 2010 by plumpdumpling

The KFC Double Down is on Twitter, and it is following me. I like it better than all of my other Twitter friends, too, because it says things like, “This is my 100th tweet. Not bad for a sandwich. A delicious, filling sandwich.”

It tweeted to Anthony Bordain: @NoReservations: I come in peace. And Original Recipe. And Grilled. All delicious!

Andrew Zimmern tweeted to it: @kfcdoubledown Fermented walrus anus? Yes! KFC Doubledown? No f-ing way!

And the other day, it tweeted to me in response to my review of it!

I think my new dream job is to tweet as foodstuff.

      I tweeted about your porn yesterday, actually. I’m sure you’ll find a way to repay me someday. WITH A DQ BLIZZARD SENT TO MY HOUSE IN DRY ICE, HOPEFULLY.

    “I like it better than all of my other Twitter friends…”

    I’ve been outclassed by a SANDWICH. A FAST-FOOD sandwich. Not even a Tom Colicchio sandwich.

      Oh, um, you’re #2?

      Or, um, #1 amongst humans?

      Surely that counts for something.

      It’s funny how things like this make me like the chain as a whole better, too. Suddenly KFC as a whole is clever and has a sense of humor to me, not judge the marketing execs who decided this would be a good idea.

        agreed! between the double down and the tweets, the dudes at kfc must be marketing gurus.

            is it weird that i find this devastating? if you cant trust tweeters to be honest, who can you trust??

              I was honest…about tweeting as a sandwich.

    I’m so happy to hear that you and the Double Down are making nice on Twitter!

      Meeeeeeeeeeeee, too. Although I found out today that it’s a real person! Named Travis! And he commented right below you. So disillusioned.
