KFC has a terrifying new game to train employees (YUM)

KFC has a new way to train employees — and it's straight out of a horror movie. 

On Thursday, the fried-chicken chain announced that it would begin training employees with a virtual reality game.

The game, called "The Hard Way — a KFC Virtual Training Escape Room," is a 25-minute process in which participants need to virtually prepare fried chicken to "escape" and win. 

Watching the trailer, this escape seems closer to clawing your way out of a haunted house than strolling out of a fast-food kitchen.

Spooky music plays in the background. Suddenly, the empty room cuts to a spinning statue of Colonel Sanders' head:

 "IF YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME YOU'VE ALREADY LOST," the screen reads.

 

 

 

The virtual reality simulation is intended to supplement the chain's current employee training program. In 2016, KFC launched its "re-Colonelization" effort, which involved a national employee retraining to boost food quality across the chain.
