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?
