Have you ever felt a little disappointed after winning a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds match, being told you've won a chicken dinner only to work out you're unable to physically enjoy it? Well, KFC heard the jokes and calls for the company to bring its chicken to PUBG and has answered the call. As covered by Bleeding Cool, by tuning into select streams this weekend (March 24 - 25), you'll be in with a chance of scoring some gift cards and even a chance at bagging some unique loot.
The streamers taking part in this promotion include Anthony Kongphan, Dr. Lupo, Sacriel, and Sequisha. When one of these streamers win a game of PUBG, by using the new KFC Twitch emote, you'll be automatically entered into the draw. It's actually a really cool way of working in the paid promotion, getting viewers involved.
What's more is the physical loot you could win will include a Colonel Sanders ghillie suit, survival spork, skillet mask, $50 KFC gift card, and a medkit. It's not known what's contained within the medkit. This isn't quite as good as offering free chicken to anyone who wins a game, but it's the next best thing and who could say no to the Colonel's chicken? If you're interested in taking part, be sure to tune into one of the streamers this coming weekend.

Now, that is a pretty good marketing strategy. In regards to the lead image, for a second I thought it was a gigantic beetle with glasses painted on it 😶 lol.
