Christmas; the time of festive thanksgiving and family get-togethers, mistletoe, embarrassing relatives and... turkey.
However KFC, the chicken aficionados, believes that nobody really likes any of the turkey preparation or eating rituals and highlights some of the pitfalls of turkey preparation in these five funny animated shorts from Mother London, directed by Stink's Golden Wolf.
"Burnt, overdone, chewy, dry… we’ve all got a turkey horror story," says Kate Wall, Head of Advertising and Retail at KFC UK and Ireland, "and they’re usually enough to keep any family’s designated chef up all Christmas Eve.

Wishing everyone good luck with the turkey on 25th December. ‘Cos until then we’ve got you.”
