KFC occupies the Philippines with Double Down Dog
Amid a region that has long been marked by instability, roiling upsets, and suffering, KFC has found the perfect place to deploy its Double Down Dog, its latest arm of a worldwide effort to replace all things with fried chicken—including, eventually, arms. That plot thickened and congealed over the fall, when KFC took its now-somehow-referred-to-as-“traditional” Double Down sandwich and added a bacon cheeseburger inside it. Now the race has accelerated considerably by KFC nestling a hot dog deep within a greasy, waiting “bun,” in a sentence that would be more appetizing were it actually a sexual euphemism.
