E.T. Likes Fried Chicken

I like a commerical that leaves room for interpretation. The above spot for Bojangles does just that. For what might it mean to take southern fired chicken away from those who would hold the highest office in the land? Does it mean our President should dine on grilled chicken, not fried chicken? Or is it a populist sentiment of some sort–a subtle way of saying Bojangles is for common folk, not suit-wearing promise makers with out-sized egos.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
