Burger King's Subservient Chicken is Subservient No More

David Chronicles the Rise and Fall of the Fowl

Published on Apr 30, 2014

Editor's Pick

Burger King and David have debuted a new, documentary style film that chronicles the rise and fall of the chain's famous fowl -- the subservient chicken, in the latest release from the advertiser's new integrated campaign. (The brand announced that it was bringing back the chicken via online and print executions through Code & Theory and Horizon Media earlier this week.)

The new film, directed by Hungry Man's Bryan Buckley, takes the form of a show chronicling what happens to Internet celebs. It shows the chicken suffering the humiliation of being a has-been star after his 15 minutes of fame are up. But after some serious, Rocky-style training with a part-time life coach and plumber, he's back -- with a new name, Chicken Big King, which also happens to be the name of the new BK sandwich he's promoting.
