Country music fans might instantly recognize the voice of the first woman to play KFC’s Colonel Sanders, but for others, it could take several seconds before figuring out who’s in the sparkly white suit.
“I’m Colonel Sanders,” Reba McEntire, disguised as the man himself, belts out in the opening seconds of the chain’s latest spot. “Same as always, absolutely nothing’s changed.”
Wearing a wig, facial hair, glasses and a fringed, sparkly white suit, McEntire dons a look similar to that of the nine male celebrities who have starred in the ever-changing Colonel role. She’s the first woman, and the first music superstar, to play the part, which originated with Darrell Hammond in May 2015. Her spot, from KFC agency Wieden & Kennedy Portland, is also the first one to feature dancing policemen.
“I grew up with Kentucky Fried Chicken,” McEntire said in a KFC statement. “It’s part of my story, and I’m so excited to now be part of theirs. I’ve held a lot of roles in my life—sort of like the Colonel himself— but this is certainly the most unique one yet.”
