It's an attempt to bring back the traditional symbol of Kentucky Fried
Chicken while making more "hip" or more fitting for this generation.

It's a bad idea IMO. It doesn't really make my skin crawl or wig me out,
but I just know the modern Col. Sanders image SUCKS in those commercials.

I get why they are doing it. I remember a survey a few years ago something like 75% of milennials surveyed didn't know who the Colonel was and over 50% had never had kfc. But there is something about that SNL dudes delivery and the cackle is what makes my skin crawl I think

Agreed they're pretty creepy. I finally figured out after several viewings that the concept is that he's like stuck back in the day when the real Colonel was alive (fill up your gas tank for 5 dollars; baseball will never be sullied by scandal), but doing a modern promotion. Just doesn't make sense on any level, really.



Did get me to try out the Finger Lickin' Good sauce though. It was pretty yucky imo

They enlisted the great Darryl Hammond to do a sort of parody of the original and real Colonel.

It's God Awful and that guy has an accent right out of Deliverance. Not what a Kentucky Colonel would have at all.

It almost reminds me of what Saturday Night Live would do as a parody of a kfc commercial

I heard Hammond was doing those commercials and thought it a slightly curious choice. Nevertheless, I wanted to see them. I wish I hadn't seen them. They make me cringe every time they come on the TV.

My grandmother worked for "the colonel" and attended his funeral. It was honorary. He was a mean racist bastard. Made some good chicken.

Friend of mine managed the KFC in Greer when it opened he had a surprise visit from the Col. According to him if you put every sailor in America up against the Col he could our swear all of them. Mean nasty human being is his rep.

Understood. You are one person.

There are 301.3MM people in the US, give or take. The goal of advertising is for brand awareness. Odds are that the campaign has raised awareness of the brand. That being said, it's creepy and we have a Bojay's here too and I'm jonesing for some biscuits now that I think about it.

Used to love KFC, but it got off my radar years ago when the tried to get on
that "more healthy food craze" to head off the PC crowd that was trying to
put McDonald's out of business. Also wasn't crazy about the Company dropping
the Col. as an Icon after he died and tried to re-tool it's image by branding
themselves more as "KFC" rather than to be known as Kentucky Fried Chicken.
It's not the same KFC I grew up with ...... BoJangles has become my Chicken
of Choice now. The Chicken is Good, but I'm hooked on their Dirty Rice as
well as their Biscuits.
