Popeyes awards 'Family Feud' contestant $10K for viral gaffe

"Oh, my Gooooood", one family member gasped.

Host Gerry Dee asked her, "Name Popeye's favorite food".

Dubois, who went viral after giving a hilarious (and hilariously wrong) answer to a question about Popeye on the Canadian version of "Family Feud", has been awarded $10,000 worth of Popeyes chicken as a condolence prize following the airing of the now-infamous episode.

In the case of viral Family Feud contestant Eve Dubois, it turned out to be the latter. Much to her dismay, the question was in reference to the legendary cartoon character Popeye, not the increasingly popular Southern-style restaurant chain. "Chicken!" she responded, following it up with a small celebratory dance.

So, the host quickly looked at the camera and put his head down, because well, it was embarrassing.

Eve Dubois was so sure.

Naturally, it saw a chance to act.

Influenza is contagious and can spread by droplets from infected people when they talk, cough or sneeze, according to the SWUPHD. Peak flu season is not until late January or early February, so the health department has urged residents to get vaccinated.

Twitter users are echoing Dee's tweet and are now calling for Dubois to feature in Popeyes commercials, with twitter user @billzoum saying: "I second this Gerry and I would also recommend @PopeyesCA signing her up for an endorsement contract, she's by far their biggest fan.lol".

"Show me chicken!" Dee roared at the board - which of course yielded a large X - before asking her more composed opponent for the correct answer.

"The real tragedy of this video is that only 54 of 100 people said spinach in the actual survey", wrote another. He was correct, and the Tomlins advanced to the Fast Money round.

So that's right: It's time for some Family Feud Canada coverage.

Popeyes Chicken responded by offering Dubois $10,000 worth of Popeyes food, in the form of a giant check with the memo: "winner victor chicken dinner".

With lightning quick reflexes, Dubois struck the buzzer: "Chickennnnnnn!" she sang, before performing an impromptu - and slightly premature - victory dance.

She created a moment that has transcended Canada and went worldwide. "DM us to claim your $10,000 worth of Popeyes".
