KFC's St Patrick's Day ad will make you cringe so hard you might never recover

Stop with the stereotypes already.

KFC has launched a new meal to celebrate St Patrick's Day.

Naturally that meal comes with its own over-the-top 'Oirish' ad campaign

Just like with last years' Irish-ish O'Sanders burger, their 'marketing man' Randy is back to show us how to make a KFC meal more Irish (spoiler alert: throw in some culturally insensitive stereotypes and the job is done).

Last year the fast food chain launched a similar ad which offered a more tongue-in-cheek take.

The red-headed marketing man played on some of the things Irish-Americans do that really irritate Irish people, such as asking people if they know a distant ancestor, inquiring about hidden pots of gold and turning food green.

But now it just feels like they're trolling us.
