One just wouldn’t do.
KFC has now used two former Saturday Night Live performers to play their iconic figureheard, Colonel Sanders.
It started with Darrell Hammond appearing as the Colonel in some commercials earlier this year, but he’s been tagged out for some reason and Norm MacDonald has stepped in.
From a press release from KFC:
For the first ads, we rebooted things that made Kentucky Fried Chicken the most favorite chicken brand in the world. We brought back the Colonel’s iconic office, his white stretch limo, and the children’s mandolin band he outfitted with instruments and white Colonel Suits to create authentic Kentucky bluegrass music. And the new set of ads are more of that same homage to the things that made Kentucky Fried Chicken such an important part of American families.
Get that chicken money, Norm. Get it.
