Colonel Harland D. Sanders, founding father of Kentucky Fried Chicken, passed away nearly 35 years ago. Some genius convinced the current owners of KFC to, ah, resurrect Sanders for a series of commercials that began running earlier this year. Actor-comedian Darrell Hammond (Saturday Night Live) is behind the makeup.
Even with the wig & mustache, Hammond's not completely into the character.
