TOKYO, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- KFC Japan is celebrating "Colonel Day" with a giveaway including chicken-themed computer accessories and an enormous iPhone 5s case.

The Japanese wing of the U.S.-based fast-food company announced earlier this month it is celebrating the Sept. 9 birthday of founder Colonel Sanders, born in 1890, by giving away items to Twitter followers including a computer keyboard with chicken shapes instead of letters.

The company announced late last week the giveaway will also include a massive iPhone 5s case shaped like a friend chicken drumstick and an enormous desk pillow that users can wear "as a helmet."

KFC's ad features an animated colonel laughing at how the iPhone case is "so big," and a girl in the pillow ad comments, "You can use it as a helmet ... You can put your hands in it!"

The items, along with other chicken-related accessories including earrings, will be given away to followers of the KFC Japan Twitter account who enter by using the #KFCColonelsDay hashtag prior to Sept. 24.
