Col. Harlan Sanders of KFC fame may have been a genius at marketing fried chicken. But in our meat-is-murder, health-obsessed world, his legacy hasn’t aged well. Oddly, the same can be said of Moby, whose new music video stars an overgrown pimp-chicken who takes violent, blaxploitation-style revenge on a Col. Sanders lookalike. Blood flows. Eyeballs pop. Human limbs are devoured. The song, “Disco Lies,” still sucks, though. I know this because I like it, and my taste in music is terrible. Styx forever! As weird as this video is, some of these old KFC spots (here and here) are actually more disturbing. Look at this one, with those people parading around a big bucket. Man, they love that chicken. They look like robots. “Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!” Sigh. Why do my co-workers shun me?
