Picture this – it is after hours when a rather amused Clown enters the exclusive Licious Kitchen with a red balloon. A Colonel and a King follow soon after, and you can almost cut the atmosphere inside the store with a knife as their eyes lock. It begins to get fiery now, as the Licious team member at the counter nervously looks on; just as the sound of the bursting balloon breaks the tension. This isn’t the plot of a suspense thriller, but only the perfect setting for a hearty Friendship’s Day celebration with, well, ‘friends’. They may not see eye to eye or may be locking horns all day long, yet, nothing brings the Clown, King & Colonel closer than their unanimous #LoveForMeat. And what better way to celebrate this love than over a spread of Licious delicacies. Watch <Link> these unlikely buddies bond over juicy crispy chicken, delectable burgers and more, as they mark the day of friendship at an exclusive Licious outlet – The Licious Kitchen – in this latest film by the brand.
