KFC have launched their Christmas campaign with a series of animated ads.

The five 10-second ads tackle the challenges of cooking turkey on the one day of the year most Brits attempt it.

The horrors include carving, fitting the turkey in the oven, and defrosting the bird in time.

The campaign, created by Mother London, will run across TV, social, and OOH.

Kate Wall, head of advertising and retail at KFC UK and Ireland, said: "Burnt, overdone, chewy, dry… we’ve all got a turkey horror story. And they’re usually enough to keep any family’s designated chef up all Christmas Eve.

“This year we wanted our Christmas campaign to take an irreverent, cheeky look at the ritual that has become ‘Christmas Turkey’. Wishing everyone good luck with the turkey on 25th December. ‘Cos until then we’ve got you.”
