The bigger crime was showing KFC commercials on FSNO. Popeye's is a New Orleans institution. In fact for most of the world Popeye's is as close to New Orleans cuisine as they can get.
I think that's the point. KFC is trying to chip away at Popeye's hold on the market down here. Popeyes feels like they don't need to advertise much down here. Unfortunately, Popeye's quality has really gone downhill. At this point, I prefer the chicken from Church's. Also, those shitty sponge biscuits are a poor replacement from the Popeye's biscuits I grew up eating.
