• Popeyes spices up ad campaign with feisty spokeswoman

    Tags: Chicken
ATLANTA — Popeyes, a division of AFC Enterprises Inc., has kicked off a new television and radio advertising campaign featuring its first spokesperson, a fictional, no-nonsense, mad truth speaking Popeyes chef named Annie.
 
In the spots, created by Popeyes' creative agency-of-record GSD&M Idea City, "Annie the Chicken Queen" addresses off-camera consumers directly from behind the counter, engaging them with her friendly yet blunt style: "I know what you want. Hey, I knew what you wanted before you knew."
 
Annie's quips are interspersed with mouth-watering shots of Popeyes' signature Bonafide chicken and Louisiana tenders being marinated in Louisiana seasonings and hand battered.
 
The new ads will run in 15- and 30-second spots on national cable TV focusing on several new promotions, including an offer of two pieces of Bonafide chicken and a biscuit for just $1.99.
 
"We created Annie because we wanted to really capture the brand's personality — honest, vibrant, youthful and authentic," said Dick Lynch, chief marketing officer, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. "Everyone has a relative or a good friend who will give it to them straight, and that's what Annie is all about."

    I'm sick and tired of of Annie claiming she's cooked every single piece of Popeye's Chicken! Who isn't??? Fed up with Annie in Little Rock!
