KFC has hired Golden Globe Award-winning actor George Hamilton to play Colonel Sanders in their new TV ads for Extra Crispy Chicken in the US.
He's the fourth Colonel since the character was revived in marketing last year; the first two were Darrell Hammond and Norm MacDonald.
Although the internet reacted with some rather cold chips with no seasoning reaction to the Crispy Colonel...
The KFC marketing people gave this statement, explaining why they selected Hamilton for the role:
"Extra Crispy Chicken is fried to a golden brown. George Hamilton isn't fried to a golden brown, but he is tanned to a golden brown," KFC CMO Kevin Hochman told Business Insider.
