SHINee’s Key And Onew Unexpectedly Appear In Kentucky Fried Chicken Ad

They certainly have our attention!

SHINee‘s Key and Onew are American fast-food chain KFC‘s (Kentucky Fried Chicken) latest celebrity endorsers. Well… Kind of, sort of…

KFC’s official Spain Twitter account recently shared a video, and it was a compilation of memes related to the fast food. Yet, it was all incredibly chaotic.

Like… We literally have no other words to describe it.

And what is the most iconic and chaotic KFC-related meme of all time? Of course, it’s Key and Onew dressed as Ronald McDonald and Colonel Sanders, respectively!

It was just a short clip featuring the two “fighting,” and the video continued to get increasingly wild.

SHINee are the “kings of Halloween” and always kill it at SM Entertainment‘s annual Halloween party, SMTOWN Wonderland.

But the year that Onew and Key dressed up as the iconic fast-food chain mascots went down in history.

This moment is now one of the most recognizable memes that even went viral among non-K-Pop fans.

While the clip of Onew and Key in KFC’s short “ad” was unexpectant, we can’t help but think they would be perfect for the brand’s next celebrity ambassadors! Lately, KFC has collaborated with American rapper Jack Harlow and content creator, dancer, and actress Liza Koshy.

Years ago, McDonald’s gave Key a gift after his Ronald McDonald costume sparked so much interest.
