Kenny Rogers Roaster’s
fitting year-ender

Set aside some silver linings, 2020 has proven itself to be universally cruel to the world and has made everyone eager to move forward from it.

But before that, we had the opportunity to let out all our emotions and say our final words about 2020, no holds barred.

Last 29 December, Kenny Rogers Roasters Philippines took on a bold and crazy move once again by literally roasting 2020 — skewering meat shaped like 2020 and setting it on fire — and documenting it on Facebook Live. Everyone figuratively and freely roasted 2020 through the comments.

“(It) was an extreme year, and we each have our own opinions on how it impacted our lives.

We were locked down for months, and most of our plans had changed. Roasting 2020 was a platform for everyone to say anything they wanted and to unify the sentiments,” the company’s marketing director Lorent Adrias said.

On top of that, those who shared their feelings received a special treat from Kenny’s. “After roasting 2020 and all its negativity, we hope that our treat would somewhat help in signaling a better year in 2021,” he added.

Watch the 2020 roast on:
