KFC hires 1st female Colonel Sanders
    2018-January-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THIS may be the one time you can get away with calling Reba McEntire a “chick.”

The country superstar has been cast as KFC’s first woman to play its iconic pitch person, Colonel Harland Sanders.

The company unveiled a commercial Thursday which poked fun at that fact, having McEntire sing lyrics asking the audience to ignore the Colonel’s resemblance to a famous country singer and stating that he is “definitely not a woman.”

The singer has been enlisted to promote KFC’s new Smoky Mountain BBQ fried chicken.

In the ad, McEntire looks nearly unrecognizable, wearing a gray wig and mustache and Sanders’ classic glasses. The 62-year-old is also wearing a sequined white suit while singing at a good old-fashioned honky tonk.

“Absolutely, nothing has changed,” she sings. “Oh, please ignore any likeness to famous country singers. I’m definitely not a woman. Oh wait there’s one thing that’s new about me, it’s my Smoky Mountain BBQ.”

While showing off her famous vocals, McEntire throws a sparkly cowgirl hat to a table across the room which lands on the singer dressed as herself sitting at table.

She continues singing while the crowd gets rowdy: “Back to my chicken, smoky and crispy, tender and amazing too. I swear I’m not a famous woman.”

Previously, the role has gone to famous male comedians like Darrell Hammond, Norm MacDonald, Rob Riggle and Jim Gaffigan.
