KFC Logo Launch in Area 51

Posted on November 15, 2006

KFC has now built the first fast food chain logo that will be actually visible from space. The logo is reportedly 87,500 square feet wide and features a new image of the founder, Colonel Sanders. The Colonel now wears an apron.

With the increase in alien abductions and UFO sightings, it makes good sense to have the logo available from space. That way the aliens know which exit to take in order to be able to grab some friend chicken before they head back out into space.

"The Colonel is truly a global icon and we want everyone in the universe to see KFC's new look of the future," said Gregg Dedrick, president of KFC Corp. "KFC is boldly going where no brand has gone before as Colonel Sanders takes one small step for humankind, but one giant leap for fried chicken."

The giant Colonel Sanders logo was built off The World�s Only Extraterrestrial Highway in Rachel, Nevada, also known as the "UFO Capital of the World," and the epicenter of inter-galactic communication.

"If there are extraterrestrials in outer space, KFC wants to become their restaurant of choice. For now, we'll be very content satisfying the entire human population with our Finger Lickin' Good Chicken. If we hear back from a life form in space today � whether NASA astronauts or a signal from some life form on Mars � we�ll send up some Original Recipe Chicken," said Dedrick.

This is all fine and dandy -- so long as the aliens want to eat chicken. But what if they misinterpret the picture of Colonel Sanders? What if they think that he's actually a menu item and not just the founder of the company? We are quite concerned that KFC may have made a very serious error with this marketing campaign.
