    This is exactly what they had in mind. A series of Colonel Sanders impersonators.

    One of the stranger campaigns out there, but I suppose you should expect that from a joint that sells food by the bucket.

    Imagine that marketing meeting:

    Marketer 1: *snap* "By gum, i've got it! Now stay with me, nothing says eat some chicken like the reanimated corpse of Colonel Sanders."
    Marketer 2: "Yes! If one reanimated corpse is good, how about two?"
    Marketer 1: "I like it. Let's get wild here......a series of Colonels."
    Marketer 2: "Better!"

    Look at Jared. Look at that faggot Verizon guy or that bitchy Progressive girl. No company wants to be beholden to a spokesperson if they can help it. That person ends up having too much power over the company, and the company either pays them way too much to retain them exclusively, or risks having their spokesperson poached by a rival company. And even if they do that, there is a chance that spokesperson starts diddling kids, and puts you in the paper for all the wrong reasons.

    So you hire a comedian that's not at the top of the pyramid. A working comic. You get him as the spokesperson for a few months, maybe even an entire year. Then you move on to the next comedian, and even acknowledge you dropped the other dude. This has people talking, and that is always the point in advertizing.

    I think it's just a novel way of refreshing interest in the brand er'ry few months.

    I thought Norm was great. But I do think there is something mildly amusing about having a new Colonel every few months.
