Advertising For Dummies: If you think KFC raised Col. Sanders from the dead.......(2015)

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.

Edit, 3/28/17: This copy has the ad running twice. The original was deleted.
