A legend is born
KFC (or “kentakkii,” as it’s popularly known) launched its Japan-wide Christmas campaign in 1974 and since then has aggressively marketed its buckets as a holiday essential.
Today, as Public Radio International's Akiko Fujita has reported, "KFC commercials signal the start of the Christmas season in Japan."
According to the company, their holiday campaign was first conceived in 1971, at their Aoyama store. A homesick foreigner wandered in, bemoaned Japan’s lack of turkey, and chose fried chicken as the next-best alternative.

And KFC is actually one of the few American chains I have seen in Vietnam...Never gone in, but I have seen a few of them. No pics of the colonel though, since they think he looks like Ho Chi Minh...
Saw McDonald's in Korea. No Kim Jong Ill in clown make-up, though.
