About a month back, Square Enix announced a promotion that would let players get a Black Fat Chocobo mount if they made a video game purchase on amazon.
Well, this Black Fat Chocobo promotion has made a return in China – though in a far more different, finger-lickin’ good, form. In a collaboration between KFC in China and Final Fantasy 14, players will have to dine in at KFC outlets and eat a family package (worth 94.5 CNY, which is about $18.70 SGD), for one (1) Black Fat Chocobo redemption code. Sounds simple enough, right?
That’s where you’re wrong. The meal in question (pictured above) is a family package – in other words, it includes four meals, and is meant to be eaten by four people. Here’s a list of all the food included in the family package:
- 1 Double Chicken Burger
- 1 Vegan Mushroom Burger (which is supposedly disgusting)
- 1 pack of 5-piece Chicken Nuggets
- 2 pieces of Original Recipe Chicken
- 1 2-piece set of New Orlands Chicken Wings
- 1 Old Beijing Spicy Duck Roll
- 2 Large Pepsis
- 2 Large Peach Oolong Teas
If you think this is scary, here’s the most horrifying part – all this food only entitles you to one code. Players who take up this challenge don’t have to eat everything by themselves, but if a whole group of, say, four friends, need four codes, four family packages have to be ordered. Here’s what that looks like in real life:
On the bright side, according to reddit users u/Cozywolf and u/GGAGts, it seems that KFC China’s official Q & A states that players won’t have to finish the meal to get the code, just that they have to dine in. It’s understandable why most challengers try to finish it on-site, though, considering how cold chicken is gross, and how hard it might be to bring home not one, but four large drinks.
In fact, it’s so challenging that people have started sharing their tips and tricks online – from the body profiles of the people who managed to finish the challenge, to the order in which you should eat the items, if you want to finish the family package alone. One person who finished the “raid” alone was so full that they skipped lunch and dinner that day!
All in all, it’s an interesting challenge – almost like taking on a challenging boss in real life, with your friends! Hopefully more challenges like this take place around the world, though it’d be nice if less food needs to be consumed. A challenge is a challenge, but think about the possible wastage!
