KFC's Colonel Sanders is the focus of a new Drunk History episode that tells the story of the fried chicken chain’s founder. KFC sponsored the segment on Comedy Central, which features Steve Agee playing the role of Colonel Sanders.
'Colonel Sanders: The Origin Story' offers an entertaining way for consumers to learn the brand's history over the course of just a two-and-a-half-minute video.
The Drunk History segment is in line with a campaign that KFC started back in 2015 featuring different people taking on the role of Colonel Sanders, many of them being comedians. At the same time, the Drunk History audience has the potential to learn the interesting background behind an iconic fast food chain in a way that does not deviate from the show's regular format.
