KFC Romania launches its first mobile campaign

"Bite To Win," is KFC Romania's first large scale digital application. It also sounds incredibly pervy.

They wanted to play off the notion that KFC's new fillet bites are made from scratch and therefore not uniformly perfect looking. Each shape would be different. So the mobile initiative uses shape recognition technology to see if your bites look like any of the 50 suggested shapes. If you collect enough shapes you start winning prizes.

They personally lost me at "download the app," but I still think the idea is quite fun, especially because some of the shapes in the recognition software include an elephant and Elvis.
