You Can Be The Next Colonel

10 06 2009

I got this in an e-mail from KFC…

For more than 60 years, the image of Colonel Harland Sanders has represented Kentucky Fried Chicken. Now, along with online partner MySpace, KFC is embarking on a worldwide search to identify the new face of Kentucky Grilled Chicken (KGC).

Are you the ultimate KGC fan? Whether it’s an uncanny resemblance to the Colonel, the ability to create a sculpture made of Kentucky Grilled Chicken buckets, or a story about what KGC means to you, fans can submit their videos through July 7 at

Three finalists will be selected and MySpace members will vote on the winner, who will receive Kentucky Grilled Chicken for life – valued at more than $13,000! In addition, the winner might even have the opportunity to participate in KGC marketing activities. Good luck, all you wannabe Colonels!
