He explained on the footage that he delivers frozen chicken to the restaurant, and as the courier turned on the kitchen lights in the restaurant, gigantic rats started running for cover.   

“Still love that chicken?” the man says, poking fun at the company’s slogan. 

Popeyes has not yet released a statement over the video.
