I do not know what it is about the holidays and having an issue with a certain fried chicken locale that claims their food is finger licking good. And god help you, if you lick your fingers after picking up one piece of KFC chicken. Your heart is going to pack its bags and leave your body. But again, another holiday season, and another WTF starring the colonel. What is it this year?
Today, an announcement dropped from the network Lifetime that this Sunday a mini movie will premiere on their network called, “A Recipe for Seduction.” And the story is about a young woman who is part of a wealthy family looking for love, she just happens to meet an upstart cook, Colonel Sanders who is played by god damn AC Slater. (Mario Lopez)
And I know, this can’t be real, and you would be wrong. Lifetime released a trailer hyping the premiere during the Christmas movie marathon on Sunday.
We went from a yule log that is supposed to smell like fried chicken and regrets to KFC sponsoring a mini movie about murder, secrets, and a sexy Colonel Sanders. What in the hell?
Where do I begin? Out of all the fast food mascots, we choose Colonel Sanders? There are so many other mascots that deserve that their own Lifetime movie. Mascots like The Noid from Dominos. The NOID was a methed up version of the nestle rabbit, and I know that story would make wonderful television.
The King from Burger King. Who did he kill to take over the burger monarchy? Or perhaps, he is just a crazy person who named himself king of a fictional land. What about the scandal with Mayor McCheese and Grimace?
And then adding hunky individual Mario Lopez as Harland Sanders, while not the worst casting choice KFC ever made, they did choose cheesy action star ROBOCOP to take the helm.
And here is the worst thing, while I am making fun of this, I know damn well I am going to watch it. Because I am a glutton for punishment, which is the same feeling if you eat three pieces of KFC Original Recipe Chicken.
