Hamish and Andy in a spin over KFC Bucket
It all started when popular Australian radio show hosts Hamish and Andy received a call from a listener in Gympie. The caller said that she and her friends had started a Facebook petition to get the big bucket outside their local Gympie KFC to spin again.
As big KFC fans and always up for a bit of fun, Hamish and Andy decided to take up the challenge to restore the Gympie KFC bucket to its former spinning glory. The bucket quickly became front and centre of Hamish and Andy’s show for almost two weeks.
KFC listened to their fans and began working around the clock to bring back Gympie’s famous icon. The team at the fast food franchise network pulled together the board, franchisees and a technical team to get things moving.
Hamish and Andy dedicated time for an official response from KFC live on the show and even brought an entire mob of KFC faithfuls into the studio to help celebrate.
The huge amount of anticipation that had been built up over the previous week was met with a resounding 'yes we can!' from the mysterious, yet anonymous, KFC informant "Captain X". The Gympie bucket shall spin again.08.04.2010
