Shocker! Oprah's KFC giveaway may be too successful


As you've probably heard, Oprah Winfrey likes KFC's Kentucky Grilled Chicken.

As mentioned in a recent post, she promoted it on her show two days ago, directing people to a Web site to get a free coupon, a giveaway that ended Wednesday night at midnight (EST). And who could have predicted this? Ad Age is reporting that the Kentucky grilled chicken giveaway has had a "better-than-expected response."

Apparently, KFC's website was overwhelmed with downloads, and people, rushing to KFC, have already been turned away. Not that the coupons weren't good (they're good until May 19, excluding Mother's Day), but KFC eateries didn't have enough grilled chicken on hand.

All I can think is: What did KFC expect?
