Is the New Col. Sanders Creepy? We Think So [POLL]
Last week KFC debuted Darrell Hammond as Col. Harland Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. The ad says, "The Colonel Is Back!" Some are happy... some are not.
Personally I think he's kind of creepy. I got into work this morning and Stacy Lee mentioned some of her friends were talking about how creepy he is. What do you think?
Remember Darrell Hammond from Saturday Night Live?
People who actually knew Harland Sanders are disappointed. His entrepreneurship, originality, spontaneity, and salesmanship made him an American icon. He deserves to be connected with the success of KFC, but not to be turned into a cartoon, a caricature. Hmmm... maybe that's what's creepy about him. They took a real celebrity, turned him into a cartoon, then hired an actor to impersonate the cartoon.
