A KFC commercial featuring parents at a parent-teacher interview has led to numerous complaints.

The ad, which features a child’s drawing of two parents “naked wrestling”, tells the story of a mum and dad being asked about the drawing in a parent-teacher interview.

The ad has attracted over 30 complaints about its sexual content, The Herald Sun reports.

The parents sit speechless in the classroom with their child’s drawing of two people presumably engaged in a sexual act held in front of them, until the mother asks, “Did someone say KFC?”

But the ad, released as part of fast food outlet’s summer ad campaign, has since been altered to show a drawing of daddy’s “fart trumpet”.

Among the complaints made about the original ad were a number of concerned adults who asserted it would subject children to content that was overly suggestive and sexualised.

KFC bosses have defended the ad while the Advertising Standards Bureau assesses it, with the newspaper reporting its findings are expected to be handed down in the coming week.

The restaurant chain said it intended for the commercial to represent relatable, real-life situations.

Do you find it relatable OR should it be banned from TV?

  • I actually thought it was hilarious. I thought the “fart trumpet” add was not as funny.


  • No one forces you to watch it. If you think it’s funny, fine. If you don’t like it, change the channel.


  • I thought it was quite funny actually. I could imagine a young child drawing a picture like that.


  • 30 complaints hardly seems like an avalanche and free publicity is usually a winner!


  • I haven’t seen the ad, but seriously? I think people need to grow a sense of humour. If a child was watching it they wouldn’t understand what it was about, it’s clearly aimed at the parents and it sounds like it’s hilarious!


  • Whilst it didn’t phase me, I do remember watching it and commenting: “Really?!” I didn’t think it was a clever ad at all and certainly didn’t make me hunger for KFC. I just didn’t get it.


  • What?? Where are the broadcaster’s codes and duty of care here??


  • It made hubby and I LAUGH. tHE FUN POLICE ARE BEING PRUDISH and spoiling it for those who like a laugh and have a sense of humour. If you don’t like it change the channel. Build a bridge. Get over it!


  • KFC don’t care. They will use any disgusting immoral garbage to try and sell their garbage products. All advertising should be ABOUT THE PRODUCT, not some attention-grabbing filth that they hope will make you remember the Ad. I wouldn’t be surprised if more people DO change channel than watch it.


  • The fun police are out again. Don’t like it, change the channel. That’s the great thing about freedom of choice and remote controls.

    • I agree – that is the wonder of a remote control – changes the chanel!


  • It is a bit silly, they should have come up with something more appropriate.


  • Made me laugh…..a bit of tongue in cheek fun….can’t see the problem…..


  • No not relatable.


  • Personally I think it should be banned. I have no desire to watch it. I’m sure it doesn’t have a censorship rating on it.


  • Personally I thought it was quite funny. However my children are old enough to read so it should have been on in a later time slot where it was more adult friendly.
