KFC Makes Norm Macdonald The New Colonel Sanders, Turns Out Darrell Hammond Was Just An Impostor
Apparently, there was an impostor Colonel Sanders running loose around KFC and his real identity is Darrell Hammond. Meanwhile, the real Colonel Sanders comes out and tells the world about it.
KFC launches video campaign with the real Colonel Sanders
In a series of videos, he says that the impostor is trying to be Colonel Sanders. At some point, he even said, “They can’t just grab some super funny Hollywood actor, throw a white suit on him, and try to pass him off as the real Colonel Sanders. And I should know, because I am Colonel Sanders.”

Well, the joke may be on the great chicken-loving colonel as KFC actually just hired Hollywood actor Norm Macdonald to put on the white suit and take on the role of Colonel Sanders.
Colonel Sanders can sell chicken
And aside from preparing, cooking and eating fried chicken, there’s something else Colonel Sanders knows a lot about: how to sell chicken. And so he does, introducing KFC’s Family Fill Up for $20 that’s “a treasure chest of delicious home style cooking but served in containers, not treasure chests.” This comes with eight pieces of original recipe chicken, one large coleslaw, four biscuits and two large mashed potatoes and gravy.
In the other video (because KFC believes the new, real Colonel Sanders should be out there a lot), he introduces KFC’s “incredibly delicious” Fill Up meal for $5. It’s got two pieces of original recipe chicken, biscuit, cookie and some mashed potatoes and gravy as well as a drink.
And if you’re still doubting the new Colonel Sanders, he says he’s the real thing, with a little shrug.
