KFC Commercial Description

2012 commercial for KFC chicken pot pies starts out with 2 friends, who are driving an orange 1970’s Dodge Charger through the drive thru at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Note the necklace hanging from the rear view mirror, it says “stud”. The guys look like they’re from the 1970’s, the African American guy has an afro and the white guy has orange tinted sunglasses. Oh and they’re grooving to a SWEET song by the O’jays.

About Artist & Song in KFC Commercial

Oh I love this song. “Time To Get Down” was released in 1972 from their album Back Stabbers. Oh and not to advertise, but as of the time of this writing, that album is a measly $5 on Amazon.com. That’s a steal an well worth it. The album is also available on Rdio, where I’m listening to it.

The O’jays were among the most popular and successful bands of the 1970’s Philadelphia Soul scene. They’re probably best known for their song Love Train. They were originally formed in 1958 under the name The Triumphs, eventually in the 1960’s they changed their name and started meeting quite a bit of success. They’re still performing today actually. In 2010, they played live at the Stephen Colbert “Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear”.

Song Lyrics Used in KFC Commercial

you know that low down, how you feel about it
You ain’t doing nothing, but jiving me baby
we’ve gotta a very serious problem, yeah

Ooh, come on baby (we start to get down, down)

    I also need the name of the white actor. Bet with friend- he insists that it is Jeff Foxworthy -I know it is not but I need proof. Money riding on this!
