Colonel Sanders has some pretty big shoes. During Super Bowl 50, KFC debuted the new face of their chicken – its comedian, Jim Gaffigan. Gaffigan replaces comedian, Norm Macdonald. 

Gaffigan is fully decked out in the classic white mustache and black bow tie during the commercial. Colonel Harland Sanders was the first and original spokesperson for the food chain and created the signature recipe but died in 1980.

In the commercial, Gaffigan wakes up from a nightmare where Macdonald is posing as the “real” Colonel. As he is settled down by his wife, he looks over and Macdonald is in the wedding photo with his wife.

KFC is set to premiere more commercials with Gaffigan in the upcoming weeks.
