KFC's New Colonel Sanders Is a Virtual Social Media Influencer
Also, he’s hot.
All the good ones are either taken or computer-generated Instagram influencers—am I right ladies?!
Jokes aside, is it just me or is the new Colonel Sanders kinda hot? I mean, I know he’s fake. But the heart wants what the heart wants.
Virtual Influencer Colonel has only been online for a couple days (follow him on Instagram here), but here’s what we know about him so far:
1. He loves nature.
“Feeling so connected to nature by being on this horse in Kentucky. You have to find things that connect you,” he captioned a photo of himself gently caressing a horse. “Whether it’s to other people or a place or another spirit like a horse. You always have to find the connection.”
2. He has a girlfriend.
She’s also a virtual influencer.
3. He has a tattoo of his catchphrase, #secretrecipeforsuccess.
Because of course he does.
4. He’s humble.
As all Insta-famous influencers are.
“I may be a restaurant mogul and international inspiration, but I’m still just a kid who loves being in the kitchen,” he captioned another photo---this time, one of himself sexily admiring vegetables. “#humble It’s important never to lose sight of the things that make you who you are. For me, it’s being in the kitchen and making amazing fried chicken. That’s what got me here, and I never want to lose that young and hungry Colonel who spent all his time perfecting fried chicken. I’m still that kid who straps on an apron and makes fried chicken. And I’ll never lose that part of me. Never lose the things that make you who you are. This is part of my #secretrecipeforsuccess.”
5. He’s a silver freakin’ fox.
Just look at him.
