Guess Who’s The Newest Colonel Sanders???
We know what you’re thinking- just who IS that in the “Colonel Sanders in a Spacesuit” costume? Well, wait no longer. It’s Rob Lowe!
The actor is the latest star to don the classic white suit to portray the beloved KFC mascot in an ad promoting the Zinger spicy chicken sandwich in America. In this version, “The Colonel” sports some astronaut gear to parody JFK’s “Moon” speech in reference to his attempt to launch the brand new sandwich into space. Check out the hilarious ad below:
