Best Disclaimer Ever?

The TV version of this otherwise endless and pointless commercial for KFC contains what may be the best disclaimer I have ever witnessed in the wild:

Professional. Do not attempt to eat chicken while doing a backflip on a motorcycle. You may choke.

Imagining that some lawyer got paid a lot of money for writing that just makes it funnier.

    I can see the lawsuit now: “but nobody warned me I might crash!”

    I saw a similar disclaimer on, I think, a Honda commercial, to the effect: “This is fantasy. Cars cannot drive on top of trains.” Maybe that one was for the Grand Theft Auto crowd…

    I doubt any lawyer made a cent on this. It’s obviously just something that was put there mostly to be funny – as was the Honda one. That it has the side effect of being an actual disclaimer is just icing. (It doesn’t actually take a lawyer to write such things anyway…)
