In this new marketing campaign from KFC Spain and agency PS21 Madrid, the fast-food chain rewards its faithful customers (and helping them save time) by offering free chicken. Customers need to copy and paste the URL to any among hundreds of fake recipes available on a separate website, and they’ll be awarded coupons for free food.

Uber Eats has been entertaining us with its many celebrity pairings that make up its “Tonight I’ll be eating” advertising campaign across the U.S. and Asia-Pacific region. However, within the U.K., the brand has wowed our hearts with a brand new series of commercials that feature an ordinary delivery driver who takes on this role in the passion of a professional actor.

1.) NBA: Welcome to NBA Lane
The National Basketball Association takes a journey down memory lane or, more accurately, NBA Lane in this entertaining ad to celebrate the league’s 75th anniversary. The film is long-form and features actors Michael B. Jordan driving an elementary school bus full of children through a fictional community populated by legends from the league. The Lakers’ Magic Johnson lives right across one street from his previous rival, Larry Bird of The Boston Celtics. A fellow Laker, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, teaches the former Dallas Mavericks player Dirk Nowitzki on the art of his famous skyhook. LeBron James throws seeds into the air while he plants (a tribute to his growing empire). The tour bus is forced to take a sad moment before seeing a painting of famous late Kobe Bryant. As we travel, we’ll pass by some of the most famous characters, like Lil’ Penny from the iconic Nike advertisements.
