High-school prom: a magical evening of gowns and tuxes, limos and dancing, and deep-fried poultry on the wrist of every girl.

At least, that’s what’s on the docket for some lucky (?) chicken-loving ladies thanks to KFC, who just introduced a corsage featuring a piece of fried chicken nestled in a bed of white baby’s breath.

Is this gross? Awesome? A little from column A, a little from column B; after all, prom is about making memories, and what’s more memorable than being presented with this in front of your parents, and trying not to get chicken grease on your date’s rental tux?

It helps that KFC isn’t taking themselves too seriously, as you’ll see in this YouTube video featuring two teens, the corsage and some weirdly haunting music. Guess what happens when the guy leans in for a kiss!

KFC teamed up with Louisville florist Nanz & Kraft to make the $20 corsage, which comes with a $5 KFC giftcard so you can buy and affix your favorite chicken right before the dance.

High-school boys, get ’em while they’re hot! Or, c’mon, just go with the corsage you’ve already ordered, attach a piece of fried chicken yourself, have a good laugh and get the bonus of a crispy snack en route to the dance.

Although, it may help you snag a date: One Twitter user’s boyfriend has already gotten a “yes” out of the corsage.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

That’s just stupid. Who wants to smell like fried chicken when you’re at a fancy event?
