KFC advertising new "fiery" wings on fire hydrants

KFC's paying two Indiana cities $7,500 apiece to advertise its new "fiery" chicken wings on local fire hydrants and fire extinguishers the AP reports. The company says the move springs out of a benevolent desire to help the cash-strapped communities pay for some much-needed new equipment and is in the process of expanding the program to other communities. Really, KFC?

Marketplace Morning Report's Bill Radke perhaps said it best on Wednesday morning's show:

"I'm not saying it's a bad idea KFC, but I'm warning you, someone will take their dog to one of those fire hydrants and they will post the video on the Internet. Just so you know."
