Hugo and Holly - Kentucky Fried Chicken Commercial (Full Length) – 1975 Promotional Animation

Hugo and Holly - Kentucky Fried Chicken

Commercial (Full Length) – 1975 Promotional Animation

Start video player

Wayne Myers composed 'Hugo' for the KFC ad. I met him at a party in '98 where he gave an impromptu and quite theatrical recital of this tune. The song was released as a single in Australia. Apparently he also wrote 'Hey Hey Rolly' the Purex ad jingle.

You're right, Paul. The final few seconds of this classic ad is cute. We've published the only archive quality version we could source.

Sadly, not the full length version. This one has been cut off at the end and is missing the animals sitting outside the KFC shop having a picnic making cute animal noises in time to the music.

Is Hugo voiced by Randy Newman ?

Hi Richard. The ad was made in Australia, so we don't think Randy Newman was involved - NZ On Screen
