We're a little gun-shy of "visible from space" advertising hijinx after the Maxim cover prank, but hey — anything for Colonel Sanders. The decades-dead KFC spokesman takes another dignity hit with a tweak to his look — no longer is he wearing his white plantation jacket, but instead dons an apron. Excuse, but the Colonel doesn't make the chicken, he eats the chicken. He's a goddamned officer! Anyway, to commemorate the change, corporate parent Yum! Brands today unveiled a Sanders visible from space, if you're a high-resolution spy satellite. The 87,000-square-foot billboard rests in the Nevada desert, inviting alien munchie runs from throughout the quadrant.
