Twitter bows down after man uses KFC bucket as drink cup

Allison Yee

Soft drink lovers, get ready to have your mind blown by a man whose genius when it comes to free refills has seen him labelled an online hero.

Vancouver radio host Andy Cole posted an image of the unidentified man calmly holding a KFC bucket – yes, bucket – at a soft drink dispenser in a fast food restaurant.

The tweet has since gone viral, with over 90,000 likes and the man earning his own nickname, Soda Bucket Man.

While it’s not known exactly where the man is in the photo, with some Twitter followers speculating Russia, he’s no doubt set to spawn an army of copycats around the world.

The snap has even seen KFC Canada reach out to the customers to steer them away from doing the same.

“Colonel Sanders once said, ‘there are few problems a bucket of chicken can’t solve,’” they told Munchies.

“However, while clever, we do ask customers to use the provided cup for soda.”
