KFC China has launched a new Pokemon promo which has taken the internet by storm.
To celebrate Children’s Day, KFC China teamed up with Pokemon for a special Kid’s Meal which comes with either a Pikachu toy or a Psyduck toy. The Psyduck toy in particular has quickly become an internet sensation due to a dancing mechanic where it bobs and waves its hands up and down. Netizens have taken to taping various messages or objects on the Psyduck’s hands to make it look like its swinging them around, creating some amusing images when combined with its silly expression.
