As certain lockdown restrictions begin to ease across the UK, fast food chains have seen fit to begin reopening restaurants for delivery. Among them is KFC, which has marked the occasion with a tongue-in-cheek ad paying tribute to fans' DIY fried chicken efforts during lockdown.

The ad (below) features mobile phone footage of said chicken, set to the familiar strains of everyone's favourite power ballad, All By Myself by Celine Dion. A brief message thanks fans, declaring "we'll take it from from here." Cue cinematic shots of KFC's fried chicken landing in a bucket – all in slow motion, of course.
