    I guess you can say the Howard curse continues? :wd:

    First they tried Darryl Hammond. He was the singing Colonel.
    Then Norm Macdonald. He was the kooky one.
    Now they are going with comedian Jim Gaffigan, who was on the show last year. They seem to be playing him off as a gluttonous, chicken-obsessed Colonel.
    Who's next, Gilbert and Artie as Colonel Sanders? :jj:

    When is KFC going to realize it's not the performer that matters? People just don't want to be caught dead inside a KFC when there are so many better places to eat. They are trying to make KFC sound hip to the younger crowd, but there's no way anyone can look cool ordering a big bucket of chicken and a tub of subpar mashed potatoes (for something that's been around so long, it doesn't even taste that good).

    Good thing Yum! Brands has Taco Bell making money for them. I think we can stick a fork in this KFC revival campaign.

    I went to world star hip hop to watch reggie fights earlier today. There was a huge KFC ad at the top of the page.

    Three chicken tenders
    taters and gravy
    I throw in a biscuit
    and a big ol' cookie

    Hammond was fun, but I'm holding out on Louis CK taking on the role. He can talk about how he came into a cup of mashed potatoes and then forgot about it as he ate it an hour later.
