KFC Nixes Obama Look-Alike From Fish Sandwich Ad Campaign

KFC in Hong Kong has pulled a video ad campaign selling a fish fillet sandwich using an Obama look-alike.

A spokesman for Yum! Brands declined to say exactly why the ad was yanked from air, but he did maintain it “was meant to be a spoof.”

“No disrespect was intended,” said spokesman Ben Golden via e-mail, according to the blog Obama Foodorama.

The impersonator is shown in what looks like a rally boasting the president’s message for change.

"Change, not only for America, but for the whole world," the actor says in the ad. "Not only for your mom, but for you, for your stomach, for a better taste!"

The video is complete with a spoof on Obama's campaign tagline: “Mmmm, change is good!”
