KFC Spreads its Love and Beautiful Graffiti for Malaysia's National Day

KFC Spreads its Love and Beautiful Graffiti for Malaysia's National Day

They say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, this National Day, KFC paints their walls with artwork that shows off the uniqueness of Malaysia to express their love for the country they’ve called home for 47 years. 


Together with creative agency, Naga DDB Tribal, KFC works with local street artist, Kenji Chai to create three murals that celebrate keeping the brand originally Malaysian with ‘KFC Cara Kita’. Each wall has a distinctive painting that proudly shows the fusion of KFC and Malaysian culture. 

“In recent years, we’ve worked with a homegrown streetwear brand and an indie band to create projects inspired by Malaysians, made by Malaysian, for Malaysians. We were keen to continue working with local talents. The wall murals celebrate the collision of culture between KFC and Malaysia. Kenji Chai’s vibrant contemporary style and clever way of infusing Malaysian culture into his paintings made him the perfect artist for this project,” explain creative directors of Naga DDB Tribal, Suryadipura Salleh, Jeremy Yeoh and Rachel Hoo. 

Although faced with many logistical challenges due to the pandemic, this campaign was especially important to the brand as they were met with unconditional support from Malaysians despite the difficult times. KFC hopes that this public display of affection will show Malaysians just how much they mean to the brand. 

For the launch, KFC shares a hot & spicy video that takes you behind the scenes to see the artwork coming to life. As KFC Cara Kita is about proudly flaunting the Malaysian way, the brand asks Malaysians to express their way through a social media extension campaign. Using digital stickers or by drawing, they can create and share their very own mural. 

In the brand’s efforts to celebrate Malaysia, they have also launched Cheezy Cheezy Malaysia, a campaign to highlight KFC Cheezy Wedges – a local favourite only found in Malaysia.
