Free refills will never be the same.

A man has been caught on camera at a fast food drinks machine filling up a KFC chicken bucket.

"Dude's playing chess while we're all playing checkers," Twitter user Andy Cole, who uploaded the image, said.

The tweet was shared more than 50,000 times.

KFC told food news site Munchies it was not company policy to let people take advantage of drink refills using a chicken bucket.

But the social media-savvy company didn't seem to mind.

"Colonel Sanders once said, 'There are few problems a bucket of chicken can't solve.' We just hope he took the chicken out first.

"While clever, we do ask customers to use the provided cup for soda."

It's not clear where the photo was taken. Mr Cole is from Vancouver, but the signage at the KFC doesn't appear to be in English.
