KFC is Bringing Back Colonel Sanders
People made fun of McDonald's for bringing back the Hamburglar as a middle-aged dad with skinny jeans. So how will they react to this?
KFC just announced they're bringing back Colonel Sanders, in honor of KFC's 75th anniversary. He'll be in their new TV commercials starting Monday.
The original Colonel Sanders wasn't a character, he was a real businessman named Harland Sanders, and he started Kentucky Fried Chicken. Unfortunately he died in 1980.
For the new ad campaign, he'll be played by Darrell Hammond of "Saturday Night Live", he's the guy who does Bill Clinton, and Sean Connery in the 'Celebrity Jeopardy' skits with Will Ferrell and became their announcer last year after Don Pardo died.
