Cultural Differences

Australians are not Americans. West Indians are not African-Americans, and cricket is not baseball. Any perceived racism in the ad below is completely lost on Australians.

AN ad by KFC Australia showing a man giving fried chicken to West Indies fans has been labelled racist in the US.

In the "cricket survival guide" ad, an Australian fan named Mick asks viewers "Need a tip when you're stuck in an awkward situation?" after being surrounded by cheering West Indies fans.

He then shares a bucket of KFC chicken with fans around him to calm the situation
