KFC is selling a chicken corsage for prom

It’s prom season, and while some high schoolers are asking Netflix to the big dance, KFC has found another way to score a date (and use a sweet hashtag): A chicken corsage.

Were KFC execs stoned when they approved this crispy bit of marketing? Hopefully! As the commercial for this classy $20 bouquet attests, the ladies go nuts for this thing. Girls are actually getting promposals with chicken wings:

But there are only 100 available, so you’ve got to act fast. A note from the real Louisville, Ky., florist that really sells these things:

Chicken not included (duh.). Each corsage kit includes a $5 KFC gift check, so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy, or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress. Local corsages will have fresh baby’s breath and out-of-town corsages will have silk baby’s breath.

Your move, Taco Bell.
