A Louisville, Kentucky man has garnered nationwide attention after he actually consented to getting a tattoo of a KFC Double Down sandwich on his leg as part of a new commercial. Yes, a tattoo…as in, it's permanently inscribed on his body.
In case you didn’t know, and just so you can fully appreciate the absurdity of this story, a KFC Double Down is described by the fast food company as “bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, and Colonel’s sauce sandwiched between two 100 percent white meat Original Recipe® filets.” So a fried chicken sandwich where the chicken is taking the place of the bread. I can practically feel my arteries clogging just thinking about it.
The man — whose name remains anonymous, although we can see his face in the commercial, oddly enough — says his love for the Double Down began when the "sandwich" first came out and he went to KFC with his girlfriend to try one. The rest is eternally-inked history. In the ad, you can watch the guy waiting at the tattoo parlor to immortalize his love for the crazy fast-food creation while the artist picks out the appropriate colors for cheese, chicken, and bacon (which actually sounds really complicated).
“It’s a tattoo that people will always ask about. And it’s funny, so,” he explained of his reasoning behind getting the new ink. Oh, OK, that explains it all...except not. I still don’t get it.
I guess this man is hardly the only person out there with a bad tattoo.The featured tattoo artist from Louisville's Tattoo Salvation parlor even says that he has inked Colonel Sanders' face more than any other face...because, you know, Amurrica.
