Well, the day has finally come. A robot took Colonel Sanders' job.
In the past, the character has been played by famous faces, but now the role is being filled by one buff and brawny "RoboCop," which the company says was commissioned to transport an encrypted copy of KFC's top-secret fried chicken recipe to one of the most secure vaults on the planet - a maximum-security former nuclear bunker called Pionen in Stockholm, Sweden.
"For decades, fried chicken fans have tried and failed to recreate the distinctive, sought-after taste of the Colonel's secret recipe," KFC U.S. chief marketing officer Andrea Zahumensky said in a release.
"So more than 30 years after his debut, we recommissioned RoboCop with a new directive - to act as protector and preserve a copy of our secret recipe by transporting it to a nuclear-proof location.
Now, if you happen to survive the apocalypse, you can still enjoy Kentucky Fried Chicken. Makes perfect sense, right?"
The ingredients in KFC's world-famous fried chicken are among the world's best-kept food secrets.
After the real Colonel Sanders invented the recipe, he signed a copy and locked it inside a vault at KFC's headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky.
The blend of 11 herbs and spices is still in use today, but its components remain a mystery because the ingredients are supplied by two separate manufacturers, and then blended by a third supplier.
KFC's head chef and company president claim they don't even know the recipe.
