Crikey! KFC not honoring grilled chicken coupons

KFC president Roger Eaton may be from South Africa but he sounds Australian. No matter his accent, considering that several generations of Americans grew up hearing Colonel Sanders talk about his 11 herbs and spices in a Southern drawl, it’s unsettling to hear a man who sounds like Steve Irwin’s brother explaining how KFC goofed with its latest promo.

Eaton had a rough week. Those coupons that KFC gave out and Oprah touted, yeah, well, the chain is not accepting those anymore because the response was too high. Which raises the question — if you wanted a small response why did you get Oprah involved?

Eaton doesn’t answer that question in the video but he does explain that the coupons people printed off aren’t worthless per se.
