NEW YORK, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Recent U.S. college graduates still living with their parents are getting the needle from KFC, a major purveyor of take-out comfort food.

As if those jaundiced looks from the parents weren't enough, jobless grads are now hearing it from their pals at KFC through an ad campaign making light of their having to move back home after four years -- or more -- of campus living.

Forbes said campaign -- with the tagline "Bite Size Chicken is all Grown Up" -- includes five "mini-shows" in which typical twenty-somethings confront changes that have occurred in their family dynamic and often their old bedrooms.

Forbes noted the subject matter could be a little touchy to members of their key demographic who may be having difficulty getting their adult lives on track. At the same time, it points viewers to a Web site that could solve their problem by offering a contest in which the top prize is a year's free rent and a yearlong supply of KFC.
