KFC BRINGS GOOD GRAVY VIBES TO YOUR HOME
KFC is at it again with their latest stunt product—the gravy-scented candle. Available in Great Britain, 230 lucky winners will be selected at random from an online sweepstakes to receive their very ownKFC Gravy Candle which will “fill your home with Finger Lickin’ good vibes.” Non-winners may not be able to smell what the Colonel is cooking, but they can hear it with the KFC Mega Box, an online dashboard that lets users listen nonstop to the sounds of frying chicken, falling fries and simmering gravy. Now if only they had put an order/delivery button on the Mega Box, we’d be sold.
AMAZON UPS ITS DELIVERY GAME WITH ROBOTS
The robots are coming, again. So far this year, we’ve highlighted two snack robot delivery programs on college campuses, and now Amazon is getting into the game with six robots delivering packages to homes in a Washington suburb. The Amazon Scout program will get a package to a home, where a homeowner will need to be present to accept their delivery from the robot. It will be interesting to see if future iterations of this will integrate with the current Amazon Key program that allows delivery personnel to leave a package inside the recipient’s house. For those of you who are fans of the Terminatorfranchise, this may be the early stages of Skynet.
