Last week we got sent a press release about a KFC publicity stunt at the UN, and shrugged it off because we’re not corporate tools who reblog each and every publicity stunt (unless it involves American Apparel). But what makes this one interesting is that the stunt has deeply embarrassed UN security, who allowed a guy dressed like Colonel Sanders into restricted areas of the UN without security clearance. The guy even got a photo op with current president of the United Nations General Assembly, Libya’s Dr. Ali A. Treki!

A publicist for KFC tells us “the Colonel and a photographer were able to talk their way into the UN building to talk to officials about the request that Grilled Nation ‘earn a seat’ as the 193rd UN member state.” Acceptance by the international community is long overdue! How long can the UN keep sitting on its hands?

Security is “still trying to find out exactly what happened,” says Michele Montas, spokeswoman for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. “It should not have happened—that I will stress, and very strongly. There was some lapse in security and the individual in question… was, on the initiative of one security guard, taken… into the UN.” Perhaps a little free chicken greased the right palm?
