Doc Filmmaker Errol Morris’ great Short about ‘El Wingador’ a pro chicken wing eater. 15 pounds of tootsie rolls a day for training–respect.
From an interview with Errol Morris in the New York Times:
“A bit of background about how I came to make this short film. I had been hired by the ad agency Draftfcb/Chicago to shoot a campaign for KFC’s new grilled chicken, or KGC. KFC vs. KGC. For a 30-second spot on the grilled hot wings, I cast El Wingador. On the spur of the moment, I decided to shoot a little extra. This film grew out of that shoot. The ad campaign proved so successful that I became the first non-KFC employee to be given the coveted Breakout Bucket Award.”
