Wondros, Los Angeles, director David O. Russell delivers the epitome of 1970s cool for KFC’s latest offering in the new :30 “Drive Thru” out of Draft FCB, Chicago.  The spot flashes back to the 70s featuring a duo of infinitely cool dudes gliding through the KFC drive-through to order their new “retro” menu item: The Chicken Pot Pie.  The campaign also features :30s “Launch” and “The New Big.”

“Drive Thru” opens on a shot of a 1970s red Dodge Charger pulling around the corner to a drive-through window.  We cut to the two men in the car, both grooving to the badass track playing on the radio.  The sleek duo pulls up to the KFC drive-through speaker and the Aviator-adorned driver smoothly declares, “We’ll take two chicken pot pies.”  As the men share a satisfied nod, a voiceover begins, “KFC Chicken Pot Pie.  Our signature recipe: freshly baked and loaded with chunks of chicken and vegetables.”

We see the Chicken Pot Pie, fresh out of the oven, followed by the two men digging into their meal with ultimate satisfaction in the KFC parking lot, accompanied by the voiceover, “Some things never go out of style.”  The spot closes with the approval of one of the men as he continues to eat, “Classic, man,” followed by the KFC logo and the super, “Today tastes good.”
