KFC’s sexy Colonel Sanders on Instagram

“I feel like I am both the canvas and inspiration for this beauty. Always try to inspire like I do when I’m making amazing fried chicken.”

FC has another new Colonel. Only this time he’s not real – he’s a computer-generated slice of suave, serving up tender bites of sarcasm to the 1.3 million followers over at KFC’s Instagram account.

The “Virtual Influencer Colonel” brings all the stereotypical hallmarks of a handsome metrosexual man on Instagram to the table: Warby Parker-style glasses, stunningly high cheekbones, an incredible complexion, that “say what?” smug smile, tattoos and it’s all topped with a perfect head of salt and pepper hair.

And the captions are hilarious:

Just a couple of virtual influencers doing our thing. Always do your thing.”

Here is an excerpt from a virtual interview with the virtual colonel:

What was your job before you became a virtual influencer?
I was the OG entrepreneur and fried chicken salesman, always doing things the Hard Way.

How much does this gig pay?
I make a good living crushing deals as a virtual influencer, but let’s just say, fried chicken still pays the bills.
