Who is the REAL Colonel Sanders? The world may never know, but KFC has introduced a brand new face — along with a brand new chicken! Click inside to WATCH!

Norm MacDonald, 52, is ready to pass on the white suit and beard to a new face. For the Super Bowl 50, KFC has enlisted a new Colonel Sanders to promote their latest menu items.

Drumroll, please! Or maybe we should ask for a drumstick? Either way, the new Colonel Sanders is… comedian Jim Gaffigan! The big reveal is made in the franchise restaurant’s Super Bowl commercial, which will run during the big game on Sunday, Feb. 7.

In the commercial, Norm MacDonald, the previous face of KFC, steps out in front of a backdrop filled with delicious-looking chicken. He introduces KFC’s new Nashville Hot Chicken, but then is interrupted by the so-called real Colonel Sanders — Jim Gaffigan.

The actor shoots up in bed in the middle of the night gasping, terrified after having yet another dream about a “fake” Colonel Sanders promoting KFC’s super yummy food. Thankfully his wife is there to comfort him with an embrace, but is it all part of the bad dream?
