KFC Haha Hop: A mobile game to make you go hahaha this CNY

Listen to this article

This Chinese New Year, KFC aims to make you laugh out loud with a Mobile AR Game KFC HAHA HOP with release of the KFC Celebration Bucket with tasty Shrimp Poppers, battered prawns fried to golden perfection. This special side is the inspiration behind this fun and quirky game.


Prawns have always played a significant role in Chinese New Year, symbolising joy and laughter as it is called “HA” in Cantonese. To ensure everyone gets an extra serving of “HA” this CNY, Naga DDB Tribal in collaboration with Ministry XR created a camera operated game.

KFC HAHA HOP puts players in the shoes of Colonel Sanders with the sole mission of collecting Shrimp Poppers to bring home to CNY revelers. To do this, players have to simply laugh, and through facial recognition, the Colonel will jump every time a player shouts “HA”.

The video game is designed to be recorded through a selfie camera and to win prizes, players have to simply share their video online with the #KFCHAHAHOP hashtag. Players will stand a chance to win RM30 KFC Vouchers.
