In an exciting development for millennial fried chicken enthusiasts, the baby-boomer executives in KFC’s marketing department have finally figured out a way to combine bacchanalian fast food consumption with a portable USB charger. That’s right, the new 5-in-1 meal box — otherwise known as the “Watt a Box” — actually features an internal power source that customers can use to charge their phones while eating.
In a video released by KFC in support of the “Watt a Box” campaign, a young woman is seen texting a friend about the mysterious and sexy Rohan, who has just asked our young heroine on a date. It is at this point that tragedy strikes and the young woman’s phone battery flashes as critically low, Fear not, because the young woman is in a KFC. She charges her phone while eating — presumably — five different pieces of fried food. When she is finished ingesting, she realizes that she had accidentally been texting Rohan all along instead of her friend.
Sure, the video is a roller coaster of emotions, but it raises the question: how well does the “Watt a Box” actually charge a mobile device?
