To prove that Nuggs really can improve on nature, we engineered flying robot chickens and set them loose on the city. After seeding footage of the creatures on social, the videos went viral across all popular social channels and incited a furious online debate about the birds' origin. At the very height of speculation, we revealed Nuggs was behind the stunt all along.
