KFC plays on the true love between a man and his dog, and a KFC burger, of course.

The campaign uses the relationship between a man as his dog as the centrepiece to promote the KFC Original Recipe Burger.

The 60-second clip, by Ogilvy Sydney, follows the story of a tradie and his dog, who he rescues from a construction site. The spot shows a bond between a man and his dog, based around the idea that there is also a bond between a man and a KFC burger.

“This campaign is pure storytelling. It’s about ‘the love that never changes’; a man, his dog, and the KFC Original Recipe Burger,” explains Ogilvy Sydney’s ECD, Derek Green.

KFC's Nikki Lawson said while KFC's Original Recipe Burger was its first ever burger, it has not been promoted on its own for some time.

Several TVCs will launch this week, followed by cinema, website, radio, social and digital pre-rolls.
