For a limited time, Japanese KFC aficionados will be able to see Goku Colonel Sanders statues. The fried chicken chain is huge in Asia, and many KFC stores in Japan have statues of the Colonel in front of their stores. The Goku Colonel Sanders statues were created to promote the release of the new Dragon Ball Z animated film.

Those who follow the Dragon Ball Z series know that there are seven dragon balls in total. Naturally, that means that there are seven Goku Colonel Sanders statues located throughout Japan, including Okinawa, Sendai and Osaka. These statues are a great example of low-key cross-promotion. You don't need to give out themed toys at a fast food chain to build awareness for a new movie. Sometimes a ridiculous statue works just as well.
