Do you recognize the new Colonel Sanders in the still image above?

Look closer.

It’s not who you’d think would be following in the footsteps of Darrell Hammond, Norm Macdonald, and Jim Gaffigan.

Maybe you need another still image.


Yes, that’s exactly who you think it is. No, seriously.


That’s Vincent Kartheiser, best known as Mad Men’s Pete Campbell.


Yes, the man who doesn’t own a car and for a period didn’t even own a toilet, and who was once a vegetarian is now the face of KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken.

Because he’s hot … ?

There’s only been one ad, so far, and it only features Kartheiser on the cover of an album as a Nashville heartthrob, but yeah, that’s really Pete Campbell, hawking fast-food chicken. What a strange, almost inspired casting decision.
