“Yep, let it be known that Colonel Sanders loves the gays. Hell, I might even be gay” proclaims John Goodman as the famous KFC Colonel.
This is in a video that was made for funnyorDie.com in reaction to the storm sparked in the US by a competitor to KFC, Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay marriage stance.
KFC are obviously using this opportunity to win over some of those pink dollars that will have been lost by Chock-fil-A as a result of it having donated $4 million to right-wing groups that oppose the legalization of gay marriage. The company’s president said last month they are “guilty as charged” when it comes to supporting the “biblical definition of the family unit.”
Dressed in the Colonel’s signature white-suite, Goodman uses his exaggerated impression to clearly mock Chick-fil-A. “I love all gay people always have. And, we’re open on Sundays,” he says, Chick-fil-A is only open Monday through Saturday for religious reasons. And to impress his point of view on the audience he goes on to say, “The only church the Colonel attends on Sunday is the church of chicken”.
But what I find most refreshing is the fact that the “Colonel” says he doesn’t actually care about beliefs and that in the end it all comes to money.
