THE RETURN OF THE COLONEL ~


Darrell Clayton Hammond

(AP) – KFC is bringing back Colonel Sanders as the fried chicken chain seeks
to refresh its image by harkening back to its past.

Sanders, who founded KFC, will be played by "Saturday Night Live" alumnus
Darrell Hammond (above) in TV commercials. The real Colonel Harland Sanders
(below) died nearly 35 years ago, and KFC hasn’t featured him in TV ads for
about 20 years.

KFC also plans to redesign its restaurants with light fixtures shaped like chicken
buckets and quotes from Colonel Sanders hanging on the wall.


Colonel Harland David Sanders (September 9, 1890 – December 16, 1980)
