You may have heard that McDonald’s recently announced a line of Big Mac-patterned clothing and bedding. As if spending a days worth of calories on a Big Mac wasn’t support enough.
So far the line includes long-sleeve thermals, pants, bed linens and wallpaper with a raincoat, rain boots and a raincoat for your dog coming soon.
All jokes aside, their marketing campaign is actually a stroke of genius. Whether or not anybody is crazy enough to wear any of it is irrelevant because the clothing line did what it presumably set out to do—it got people talking.
But McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food chain that knows how to throw curveballs. KFC, Burger King and Pizza Hut have released equally, if not more, absurd products in an attempt to raise eyebrows and turn heads.
KFC’s Fried Chicken Computer Keyboard
Last year, KFC’s in Japan released a computer keyboard that had a piece of fried chicken on each key rather than a letter. Not weird at all.
KFC’s Drumstick Pillow
Unlike all the other impractical items on this list, the KFC Drumstick Pillow may be just what you need to squeeze a cat nap in between classes. Rather than rest your head on the hard wood of the desk, pop out your handy drumstick pillow for some added comfort.
Burger King’s Flame-grilled Cologne
Burger King’s flame-grilled cologne went on sale April 1 in Japan. Described as “the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat,” the product follows in the footsteps of the Burger King body spray released in the U.S. in 2008, Flame by BK.
Eau de Pizza Hut
In 2012, 110 lucky Pizza Hut lovers received a bottle of perfume with the scent of “freshly baked hand-tossed dough.” Why eat pizza when you can wear it?
