KFC & Mrs. Butterworth's

It takes two to make a thing go right

When two great indulgences are joined together, incredibly delectable things are achieved, like the recent coupling of Colonel Sanders’ crispy chicken and Mrs. Butterworth’s sweet maple syrup. In the spirit of all things tasty, KFC launched a marketing campaign to help celebrate this joyous union and we were asked to be a part of it.

Our role in the revelry was to recreate a pair of giant Mrs. Butterworth’s bottles and bring them to life in front of the camera.

Our digital chefs began by cooking up designs for the 6-foot tall lady in amber and engineering them for puppetry and rigging.

Once the designs were approved, our artisans crafted her body from lightweight materials, and for one version, created articulating arms for her to blissfully spread wide during her dance scenes with the Colonel.

Once the famous lady-bottle was all dressed up and her dance scenes rehearsed, Mrs. Butterworth’s was delivered to set and puppeteered by our trained professionals during the commercial shoots. The final results are simply delicious.
