If you are passing through Terminal C of the Philadelphia International airport this holiday season, make a b-line to the Popeye’s and get yourself an emotional support chicken. In a funny PR stunt/ obvious troll of the growing list of animals that people seem to want to sneak on to planes for ’emotional support’, the Fried Chicken chain is offering up the best kind of support they can think of, the golden brown and delicious kind.
Starting Tuesday and for a limited time, travelers passing through Terminal C of Philadelphia International Airport can purchase the high-flying fowl – a fried chicken meal in a specially designed, chicken-themed carrier box, perfect for taking onto the next flight.
“We know holiday travel can be frustrating, and there’s no better way to ease stress than with a box of delicious Popeyes fried chicken and a good laugh,” said Hope Diaz, the company’s chief marketing officer, in a statement.
At $8.49, the Emotional Support Chicken tenders meal is the same price as its earth-bound kin.
