KFC CEO Greg Creed recently said he was thrilled that one in five people hated the Hammond-led ads. Just a few months after hiring Saturday Night Live alum Darrell Hammond to play Colonel Sanders, KFC is shaking things up again. In one, appropriately titled “Celebrity Colonel,” Macdonald jokes about Kentucky Fried Chicken’s use of famous comedians to sell their food.

  • From there, the ad gets a little meta, with Macdonald poking fun at the idea that there is or ever could be a “real” Colonel Sanders.
  • The chicken chain has hired “Saturday Night Live” veteran Norm Macdonald as Colonel Sanders in a new campaign for the fast-food brand,  the company announced on Monday in a press release .
