From space, extraterrestrials and astronauts can look back to earth and see ‘The Great Wall of China’ — and ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken’s Colonel Sanders’.

‘The Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Corp’. launched a rebranding campaign with an 8130km2 image of ‘Colonel Sanders’ in the Nevada desert which the company says makes ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken’ the world’s first brand visible from space.

‘If there are extraterrestrials in outer space, “KFC” wants to become their restaurant of choice,’ ‘KFC’ President Mr.Gregg Dedrick said in a statement.

The logo consists of 65 000 300 x 300mm painted tile pieces that were assembled like a giant jigsaw puzzle.

‘If we hear back from a life form in space today — whether “NASA” [“National Aeronautics and Space Administration”] astronauts or a signal from some life form on Mars — we’ll send up some “Original Recipe” Chicken,’ said The ‘KFC’ President

The logo also depicts an updated version of ‘KFC’ icon ‘Colonel Sanders’ who wears his signature string tie but with a red apron instead of his classic white double-breasted suit.

The logo was built at the remote Area 51 desert near Rachel, Nevada, which KFC said was known as ‘The UFO capital of the world’ and famous for its association with UFO conspiracy theories.
