A bottle of Extra Crispy Sunscreen is modeled, Monday, Aug. 22, 2016, in New York.
NEW YORK -- KFC gave away 3,000 bottles of sunscreen that it said smelled like fried chicken to drum up buzz for its Extra Crispy chicken.
Several Associated Press reporters who tested the sunscreen said the smell did not immediately bring to mind chicken, however.
The stunt is another way for KFC to promote its Extra Crispy fried chicken. In June, it hired always-tan actor George Hamilton to appear in commercials as Colonel Sanders.
KFC, which is owned by Louisville, Kentucky-based Yum Brands Inc., said Monday that it was out of the bottles a few hours after they appeared on its website.

'Fried' chicken at Colonel Clucks is nasty- Not the way it used to be-To be totally honest, it is a 'cluckin' waste of your hard earned money....And using their 'new' chicken sunscreen isn't a very good idea, either- After 3-4 hours in the sun down here, you'd end up looking like an incinerated turkey in a house fire, let alone the seagulls peckin at your ass-
