Chicken Republic (a fast food chain) has consistently used socially relevant events concerning the society to make funny and perhaps offensive illustrations and images with descriptive captions. They may have found themselves under fire today after creating a cartoon about a certain “Olisa” who was having his chicken delivered to him behind iron bars in what appears to be EFCC premises.
Even though a lot of people seem to be upset about it, it appears many more people are amused and some people are even heading out to eat at Chicken Repulic today after the buzz which is not quite dead yet. As someone who studied advertising, I am utterly amused and pleased that they have arguably brought a new edge to contemporary Nigerian advertising. I think everyone should take it lightly and enjoy it.
It brought a lot of their other witty and bold cartoons and images into the spotlight as well. See for yourself…. What do you think about these?
