A gigantic piece of Kentucky Fried Chicken took to the skies, jumping from a four-thousand metre drop

The parachuting poultry flew above some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks including the MCG and Federation Square.

The human sized Chicken landed safely inside a ginormous Uber Eats bag after jumping from the troposphere to the earth’s crust in a stunning 200 kilometre an hour descent.

The adrenaline pumping stunt is part of the celebration of 500 KFC restaurants now visible on the Uber Eats platform in Australia.

“We know from thousands of searches on our app that the desire for KFC has been sky high for some time. Now that KFC has landed on Uber Eats we wanted to tell that story in an impactful, distinct and memorable way. It might not fly into your bag, but KFC’s favourites are now available to get in a few clicks on the Uber Eats app in every state and territory,” said General Manager Uber Eats, ANZ, Bec Nyst.

“It’s no secret that Aussies love having convenient ways to get their favourite food delivered, so we’re pretty excited that KFC has finally landed on Uber Eats,” said Sally Spriggs, CMO KFC Australia.

”We’re always up for a bit of fun, so what better way to make some noise about this new partnership than having a huge Kentucky Fried Chicken drumstick jump out of a plane and land into a giant Uber Eats bag? Just like us, I’m sure fans will have a bit of chuckle about this, and we’re thrilled that more people will be able to get KFC delivered fresh and fast with just a few taps on the Uber Eats app.”

TikTok’s parent company loses $7bn

TikTok’s Parent company sees losses grow as it tries to outplay Facebook, Instagram and YouTube

TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, has experienced a loss of more than $7 billion dollars in operating costs, tripling last year’s records.

The company attributes the huge loss to its massive investment in global growth. It detailed the results in a financial report which was provided to internal stakeholders.

In the first quarter of 2022, the company recorded a profit in its operating costs, with the company’s revenue expanding by more than 80% to $61.7 billion in 2021.

But expenses that are focused on expanding its products worldwide continue to swell at a rapid rate.

While TikTok is one of ByteDance’s most successful and well-known products, the company owns a wide range of digital platforms including: Douyin, Toutiao, Vigo Video, Helo, Lark and BytePlus. In total, it attracts hundreds of millions of users in China alone and 1 billion TikTok users worldwide.

The internal report was emailed to all ByteDance’s 130,000 employees. In a note of assurance, company execs “remain confident in the strength of our business and organisation.”

The ability for ByteDance to continue to invest in the company’s growth is clearly a strong advantage the company has over its competitors in the market.

A new report found Australians spent more time on TikTok in the last 12 months than on Facebook, a leader for many years in the space.

With other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube scrambling to compete with TikTok, it seems ByteDance must have a long-term expansion strategy in mind.

The company is evidently trying to arrive at a place where such massive losses relating to operating will be a distant memory.
