KFC has managed to keep its sense of humour in failing to do the one thing a chicken chain should... have enough chicken.
The fast-food chain has shut hundreds of outlets across the UK and Ireland over the past week, after running short of stock.
The problem began when it switched delivery supplier to DHL last week. The company blamed "operational issues" for a disruption in deliveries.
An ad, created by KFC's creative agency, has been placed in a number of newspapers today.
In it, the three letters in the company's name are re-arranged to spell FCK on a chicken bucket, with the words "We're sorry" printed below.
"A chicken restaurant without any chicken. It’s not ideal," the statement continues before apologising to inconvenienced customers and thanking KFC staff.
"It’s been a hell of a week, but we’re making progress."
