Corporate Logos From Space: KFC Edition
The Google Earth Blog has a humorous discussion of the “world’s largest KFC logo” in the Nevada desert. KFC stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken, the US-based fast-food chain. This stunt is about being visible in satellite mapping applications (such as Google Earth) and takes the rooftop logo craze to new heights and lengths — literally. Apparently this is located in or near Rachel, Nevada, which is also near the infamous “Area 51.”
Here are some screenshots of the logo in the dirt:
Here are all the KFC locations in Nevada, so if you pass the logo on the highway and find yourself mysteriously getting hungry, you can quickly find the nearest restaurant.
