As we all get older, Colonel Harland Sanders only seems to get younger and more handsome.
Actor Rob Lowe will be donning the white wig, mustache, and spacesuit for a series of KFC commercials to “make the world-famous Zinger literally out of this world”.
Lowe released a statement saying:
“My grandfather was the head of the Ohio chapter of the National Restaurant Association in the 1960s and took me to meet Colonel Harland Sanders when I was a kid,” Lowe said in a statement.
“It was a big deal. I thought this would be a nice homage to both Colonel Sanders and to my grandfather.”
He’s obviously taking his new job very seriously. Rob Lowe joins the ranks of ex-Colonels Darrell Hammond, Billy Zane, Jim Gaffigan George Hamilton, and Norm Macdonald.
