A real-life Cluckin' Bell opened up at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, built as an "immersive experience" and "art performance" that you could visit for some GTA-themed grub. The employees had unique uniforms and there was a printed-out menu. The setup even had a sitting area so you could enjoy your Little Clucker and Farmer's Surprise.
The uniform was as brazen as in-game but, at first glance, it looks like an innocuous yellow chicken mascot—take one glance at the back though and you'll see the slogan, "Taste the cock." The group also sold a Sprite knockoff called Sprunk, with a poster on the wall reminding employees not to serve Trevor Philips (thanks, ComicBook).
"Reason for Refusal of Service," the poster opens. "Throwing grenades at employees, hijacking customer cars, vandalism, failure to pay for meal. If you see this individual, please notify Cluckin' Bell Staff immediately or call LSPD."
The menu consisted of Cluckin' Huge, Wing Piece, Hot Cock, Chicken Sink, Little Pecker, 6i9 Cock, Little Clucker, Farmer's Surprise, and the aforementioned Sprunk.
The whole event was run by BoyWorldWide who shared a slew of photos on its Instagram of the team cooking chicken and lapping it up in the fictional, briefly real, GTA restaurant. The slogans are as lewd as you'd expect as the team went all out in embracing GTA's consumerist parody of KFC and Taco Bell.
Cluckin' Bell has been around in GTA for a long time now, first appearing in San Andreas. But it cropped up again in GTA 4 and 5. It's believed to have been founded by Charles K. Bell who is dubbed "King of the Cock" but his management isn't the best as employees are said to be unhappy, disgruntled, and rude. We hear them in-game saying things like, "I hope you choke-a-doodle-doo!" Maybe the real-life customer service was a bit better.
It's unclear if this pop-up was at all affiliated with Rockstar but visitors assume not, with it likely being a fan-run art performance that took cosplaying to a whole new level. There's dressing up as your favourite characters and then there's bringing fictional fast food joints to life. Maybe we'll see Freckle Bitches one of these days.
