English Description
The agency’s objective was to launch ‘So Good’ with a highly emotive thematic execution that would assign meaning to KFC’s now global pay-off line, and provide a platform to build future messaging.

The ad stems from the insight that one’s sense of smell is intimately linked to memory and emotion . Driven by said insight, the commercial, directed by Bouffant’s Erik van Wyk, draws the viewer in to a captivating back to front love story. The tender sense of nostalgia is amplified by the Ellie Goudling remake of Elton John’s classic, ‘Your Song’.

A very post production-intensive technique was used in the commercial. Each age transition involved copious amounts of visual effects work – the seamlessness of it is testament to the talent of the team at Sinister Studios.

The Film titled So good was done by Bouffant, Ogilvy Johannesburg advertising agencies for Kentucky Fried Chicken/KFC in South Africa. It was released in Jul 2011.
