KFC's New Colonel Sanders is a CGI Social Media Influencer and... Kind of Hot?

Thursday April 11, 2019

Kentucky Fried Chicken has had fun switching up its mascot Colonel Sanders over the last few years. From Norm Macdonald to Rob Lowe, Jason Alexander, and even Reba McEntire, the face behind the fast food chain has gone through a lot of changes.

The latest iteration on Colonel Sanders is pretty wild, though — he's a C.G.I. social media influencer with a beautiful C.G.I. girlfriend, a ripped, tattooed bod... and he's sort of hot.

Eatery reports KFC is using calling the computer generated dude "Virtual Influencer Colonel." Over on the company's Instagram, he's seen loving life with his equally beautiful, non-real girlfriend.

"It's important never to lose sight of the things that make you who you are," the Colonel captions one Instagram photo. "For me, it's being in the kitchen and making amazing fried chicken. That's what got me here, and I never want to lose that young and hungry Colonel who spent all his time perfecting fried chicken. I'm still that kid who straps on an apron and makes fried chicken."

Check out some Instagram pics of the new Colonel below.
