Retro Canadian KFC commercial from 1971

When times were better...



There are 786 KFCs in Canada today... nearly double the number mentioned at the end of the commercial. I remember this ad. It seems sexist today, of course -- the references to "Colonel Sanders and his boys..." I'm sure there was a woman or two who was cookin' up the chicken!

I wonder if they knew they were not going anywhere, going around the bucket.

I know, eh? I was wondering the same thing when I saw it. Of course, way back in the early 1970s, this was an amazing commercial! LOL I always wondered how they got Colonel Sanders up on top of that big bucket without breaking his hip. :)

This reminded me of another commercial. Have you seen the "I remember mom's cooking.." Shake and Bake ad online anywhere?

I haven't seen that one anywhere... but I haven't looked either. :) I'll put it on my list of stuff to look up!
