This is just causing me pain and to scramble for the mute button. For what reason do they have to torture me? DeadCry

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liNQYFZUfH4 and look at this? Can't they pick someone who can SING at least? AUGH!
Is this love big enough to watch over me?

That simply can't be.  I guess that KFC now has the power of resurrection.  LOL

I guess that after 35 years, they feel comfortable with a copycat.

That Elizabeth Taylor perfume commercial still airs (at Christmastime, I thnk).  And some Jim Varney commercial (maybe for an auto dealership?) continued airing after his death.  And I still see Dixie Carter's crooked-neck commercial airing on occasion.

He's a clone. They extracted his DNA from an amber-encased piece of Original Recipe... a drumstick, I think... that they found during a dig of the buckets in the back seat of the original's Caddy.

It wasn't a complete strand, though, so they filled the gaps with a bit of Rip Torn's DNA.

THAT does NOT sound like the colonel! Sounds more like a George Bush impersonation, especially that laugh!

I guess they're thinking it's been long enough that most people won't remember what The Colonel looked or sounded like.

Old farts like me remember, though.

LOL

You and me both Darthhillbilly.

But then I only eat KFC maybe 3 times a year and only because the wife and I can't figure out what else to eat. I'm not even convinced its real chicken.

What is that slop he's eating? Looks disgusting. *facepalm* Wow... at least they stopped that idiotic "viral video" campaign. God, that was annoying. This might be worse, though... I don't know. I'd rather have them go back to using an animated Colonel, like they did about 20 years ago.

I dunno.  Chicken in baked beans sounds OK---like something I'd make with leftovers at home.  Not sure I'd order it on the outside, but I might.

I've seen 2 of these on tv so far. He must be rolling over in his grave when he sees and hears this colostomy bag full of crap.
Say something clever here...

I bet the new one is a clone. They extracted his DNA from his first poopie from when he was young which they found in a amber-encased box which graverobbers found while robbing the original's grave.

I looked it up earlier.  It's some guy from SNL who does impersonations.  I forget what his name is.

This singing is evil. It's painfully bad. A wounded dog could sing better.

If the Colonel is alive, does that mean there's hope for Elvis?

Companies are willing to do just about damn anything to get more sales, except for actually improve the core product.

Expect more mascot resurrections, I doubt the Hamburglar and Colonel Sanders will be the last.

These are some of the most disturbing commercials...the high-pitched voice doesn't fit a 'Colonel'.

As I clicked on this topic a "Colonel" commercial I had not yet seen started at that exact second. It was some nonsense about the "Sweet Summer Deal". What idiot(s) thought this was a good idea?

Oh yeah, the creep factor is off the chart on this one. It's especially cringeworthy when it airs on a news program or commentary show running a story on racism -- as is inevitable these days. Many of us here in the Southland remember that the ol' Colonel was based on the stereotype of a plantation owner cooling his heels on the verandah with a mint julep whilst the Irish thug overseer whupped the niggrahs ova yondah in the cotton fields. Nobody wins.
