The KFC Ad You Can See from Space
Think you've seen some awesome franchise advertising in your day? Figure that annoying Arby's guy is top of the charts? Think those Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler spots of your youth were out of this world?
Think again, friend. The KFC franchise has quietly outdone the competition -- with an ad that can be seen from space.
Yes, according to a report on space-visible ads by NPR's Mito Habe-Evans, the Kentucky Fried Chicken gang has paid the ultimate tribute to their late leader, with a tile portrait of Colonel Sanders, out in the middle of a dry expanse of dirt in Nevada, that's visible from beyond our atmosphere.
View the Colonel in all his desert glory (via Google Maps):
In fact, the portrait of this white-haired wizard of the deep fry was created back in 2006. It was spotted by Alex and James Turnbull, who run the Google Sightseeing blog, which catalogs this crazy stuff that the brothers find using, well, Google Maps. (Yeah, there went the rest of your afternoon, spent clicking away on their blog).
Despite the fact that it cost the FranchiseHelp.com staff hours of browsing time, we're glad the Turnbulls found this ad, whose discovery should sell a few more KFC franchise opportunities for proud parent Yum! Brands...
