Norm Macdonald Is Now Hosting 15-Second ‘Fryerside Chats’ as KFC’s Colonel Sanders

KFC has rolled out the next phase of its campaign with the revamped Colonel Sanders, and despite Norm Macdonald's recent arrival, he's already feeling presidential.  Earlier this month Wieden + Kennedy swapped one Saturday Night Live veteran (Darrell Hammond) for another (Macdonald) as part of its new take on Colonel Sanders for KFC. Now a mumbling Macdonald is helming a series of FDR-esque "Fryerside Chats" in the form of 15-second spots. What's he talking about? Who knows? New deals, I guess. KFC deals.
