As yes, the crazy chicken. There’s nothing like asking two grown men to cruise a Bentley though a fast food drive in restaurant while wearing squirrel masks. El Pollo Loco was the location for this expedition and photo shoot, and I had seconds to grab the shot. Well, I had at least a couple of minutes, or as long as it took to order two chicken legs, a salad, and a three piece chicken meal.
The photo shoot was inspired by the award-winning American crime drama Breaking Bad. In the show, Los Pollos Hermanos is a fast-food restaurant chain that specializes in fried chicken across the southwestern states. The character Gustavo (Gus) owns 14 Los Pollos restaurants, and uses this legitimate business to aid in his shipment and distribution of drugs. Often I work with ideas promoted by popular culture and television, and visiting El Pollo Loco ( inspiration for Los Pollos Hermanos) was too good a photo opportunity to pass up while were visiting southern California.
