In a viral TikTok video, a customer revealed the KFC he went to had an “Asus 240Hz 1140p monitor” as the screen for the cash register.
The video was recorded by user @sosaa.r6 who mostly posts himself playing video games. This time, he filmed the inside of his local KFC. Behind the plexiglass is an Asus monitor used as a screen for the cash register. @sosaa.r6 asked an interesting question, “why is this KFC I’m accepting orders on a 240hz 1140p monitor?” The creator elaborated in the caption, writing, “Shhhhhhhhhiiiiiit the monitor is better than me.”

The video has garnered 6.3 million views since it was posted on October 27 with many viewers surprised that the fast food restaurant has a top computer.
“KFC got a better computer than me,” said one user.
“Bro they use a better monitor than me,” echoed the second.
There have been some who have suggested that KFC might be buying high-tech monitors to use as a tax write-off.
“So that when they inevitably trade it in for a cheap monitor, the manager can take it home AND write it off as a business expense,” one viewer lamented.
“The franchise owners want it for themselves and they’re going to trade it for something out of goodwill in a week so it’s “used for business,” the second accused.
“One has to prove the last thing they bought was a business expense,” said a third.
Others made jokes about why KFC needed a monitor.
“So when they flip it over, you can really see what kind of tip you left them with,” one joked.
“Franchise owners are getting new gaming monitors and don’t want to waste old monitors,” quipped the second.
“It is a worker monitor from home. He works the night shift and wants to play minecraft when it’s slow,” commented a third.
However, there are a couple that offer possible explanations for this.
“Seriously: maybe the manager just confiscating it from home because it’s broken and rusty is a quick fix?” one asked.
“Most likely something for the software they use. Must be a necessity,” the second suggested.
“The young managers are in, and the old ones out,” suggested a third.
However, upon further investigation, it appears that the computer is actually an Asus All-in-One Computer, which starts at $899.99 per the Asus website.
