A typical bucket of KFC chicken does not usually strike fear in people, however, a gigantic 7-foot-tall bucket might.
That's exactly what happened to Aleena Headrick from Georgia on Thursday when she found the massive bucket in her yard, according to Wood TV.
"When I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure that I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside," said Headrick.
The giant, vintage KFC bucket has gone on to become a bit of a celebrity in town with people driving miles to come and take a photo with it.
"Too often we need something to laugh about, and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck," said Headrick.
"Maybe we'll get giant mashed potatoes next to it," she added.
The mystery of the buckets origins was soon revealed. It turns out it belongs to her landlord, Freddie Taylor, who collets old signs.
"And that bucket right there, if you notice it, it don't say KFC," said Taylor. "It says Kentucky Fried Chicken. That bucket's probably 40 years old."
Taylor plans to have it mounted on a pole so it will be permanently displayed for all to see. But Headrick isn't mad; she said it will make her house hard to miss.
"It's unusual, but it makes really good landmarks when people come to our house," said Headrick. "You can just say, 'Come down to the giant KFC bucket and turn right.'"
