"Let It Be Known That Colonel Sanders Loves The Gays"

2012_8_2_ColonelS.png It's good to see someone laughing at this whole Chick-fil-A ridiculousness. John Goodman (clearly a man who doesn't take himself that seriously) has teamed up with Funny or Die to make a parody KFC commercial. Frankly, with a tiny bit of editing, this could be appropriate—and awesome—for the actual brand. We smell synergy.

Goodman plays the long-gone-but-still-iconic Colonel Sanders as a pro-gay dirty old man who believes that we are all equal under chicken-consuming capitalism. Just like in all of those old commercials, he's having a big country dinner around a farmhouse table. Except this time, the table is surrounded by mincing queens and topped by table dancers. There are so many quotable lines in this clip, you need to just watch it.

Other fast food brands need to jump on this, stat. If Chick-Fil-A is going to be making money by becoming the official chicken sandwich of the Republican party, another brand needs to become the hip, edgy chicken seller. There are a lot of angry gay dollars waiting to be snapped up.
