Has anyone checked on the KFC marketing department recently? We’re afraid they’re in a basement at the tail end of some wild drug bender. How else could you explain some of their recent decisions. You can add this to the list of oddities. KFC just introduced the Gamer’s Box 2.0, a Bluetooth video game controller fashioned from a to-go box of chicken. Why? Probably because they’ve been eating mushrooms and getting in touch with Mother Ayahuasca. To use the Gamer Box 2.0, you place your phone in the mount on top of the box, pair the device with it, and then use the controller pieces that protrude from the sides to play. Unfortunately you can’t buy this curiosity, but you can win it by through KFC India’s social media accounts. If the colonel starts playing the sitar in the next ad, we may need to get help.


Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
