Deceptive El Pollo Loco TV ad

2chez mike | Nov 2, 2007 01:52 PM

In their most recent TV ad, El Pollo Loco sets up the viewer by explaining how healthy and low-fat their flame broiled chicken "breasts" are. The clincher comes at the very end where they sell you their 9 pieces of "legs" and "thighs"(which are much higher in fat) for $7.99.

Anyone else catch this subtle bait and switch maneuver?
