The Hamburglar and Colonel Sanders Are Back From the Grave to Trick You Into Eating Fast Food

Foodnews 6.10.15 fast food

Fast food restaurants, now more desperate than ever due to plummeting sales, are taking a note out of the Night King’s book and unleashing legions of long-dead mascots on the world.

Here are a few characters you may have seen reanimated in new, terrifying forms: McDonald’s original pudgy, buck-toothed Hamburglar (retired since 2002) returned in May with chiseled cheek bones and skinny jeans. That same month, Burger King re-introduced its masked monarch, not seen since 2011, who is now being spotted all over the damn place. And KFC, too, recently released a renewed mascot of an actually deceased person, Colonel Sanders, who’s now less happy grandpa, more Butch Cassidy.

    I kind of like seeing the old images of Col Sanders. And it’s hilarious to see the new commercials.
