KFC’s “The Most Delicious Union…”

I had thought that last November’s KFC commercial featuring a Colonel Sanders impersonator dancing with a human-sized bottle of Mrs. Butterworth syrup was a once-and-done thing, but in a companion piece commercial airing currently, the Colonel is back, complete with a misty, bedroom-eyes type expression as he meets Mrs. Butterworth in a marble hallway while a Celine Dion ballad plays.  I know that they say “the South shall rise again,”  but this is ridiculous!

Mrs. Butterworth appears to make the first move as the impossible couple stare into each other’s faces and the Colonel caresses her molded plastic cheek, probably thinking of all the syrupy goodness contained within…then the couple lean towards one another as a preliminary to a kiss which thankfully, we don’t get to see!  

I don’t know what will happen next, and frankly prefer not to go there.  Some things are best left to the imagination, and I cringe to think of a Sanders/Butterworth union.  Perhaps in the aftermath, however, a horror writer could pen an installment called Children of the Syrup.  It would not be suitable for children or sensitive individuals, and viewer discretion is advised…

    Or, maybe they can spoof Agatha Christie by having someone mysteriously “murder” Mrs. Butterworth. With Angela Lansbury determining “whodunit” as (wait for it)…

    …Miss Maple!

      It would be a really messy crime scene, too…syrup everywhere!

        My mother just saw this commercial for the very first time, last night. She loved it! All-but-literally laughing her head off. 😆

          It seems to be the intent of many advertisers to make their commercials memorably bizarre, and the Colonel has really gone off into left field with him as RoboColonel and now Mrs. Butterworth’s lover. Funny, and with a touch of creepy!

    And, given that Reba McIntyre was successfully made to look like Colonel Sanders in a previous commercial for KFC, one has to wonder if that’s Jennifer “Baby” Gray under all that male drag?

      All I know is that Colonel Harland David Sanders is probably spinning in his grave for what has been done to his image and likeness in recent times. (Memo to myself: never become a corporate symbol or icon! You won’t be allowed to rest in peace or dignity.).

    So, that’s not a CGI of you on those Carfax commercials? 😉
