KFC: Tastes Like Home

In KFC South Africa’s latest commercial, “Tastes Like Home”, viewers follow the journey of a young girl from South Africa, who has been uprooted from home to live in Bangkok with her mom. Everything is unfamiliar – the local food, the language, the culture – but she finds comfort in the familiar taste of KFC, which helps her create friendships.

Shot in Bangkok, the TVC features a composed soundtrack by Trevor Jones, made it’s debut on KFC South Africa’s Facebook page and is supported by a social media and online ad push.
