Darrell Hammond Is Colonel Sanders

In a new ad campaign for Kentucky Fried Chicken, the fast food restaurant chain has resurrected their founder, Colonel Sanders. But the good part of this news, the part that actually matters, is that playing Sanders in the new commercials is Darrell Hammond, a Saturday Night Live icon who is best known for playing Sean Connery in the Celebrity Jeopardy sketches and Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Chris Matthews in most cold opens. My only problem with this is that it seems like KFC forgot that Sanders was an actual person who lived and not a mascot, but oh well. Hammond is still an excellent choice.

  1. It is a bit odd, but people do seem to like him as the mascot/spokesman.
