KFC Releases Hilarious Trailer For RUDY II with Sean Astin Reprising His Role
KFC has found a new Colonel Sanders, and that Colonel Sanders in Sean Astin’s Rudy! The finger-lickin’ good fried chicken fast food chain released a hilarious trailer for Rudy II: He’s Colonel Sanders Now.
The story follows Rudy’s journey as he embarks on fulfilling his new dream of becoming Colonel Sanders. And yes, Astin reprises his role as Rudy in the video! It also features Jerry Goldsmith‘s wonderful score from the original film.
Is this ad a shameful use of classic cinema? Yeah, but it sure is entertaining and funny! KFC has had some great ad campaigns. Remember their RoboCop commercials that featured Peter Weller reprising his role!?
I also want to point out something cool about this Rudy II ad. The guy who plays Rudy’s father in it is Dan Ruettiger, the real Rudy the film is based on! Enjoy!
