A few weeks ago, an eagle-eyed fan spotted something curious about Kentucky Fried Chicken’s Twitter page. The account only followed 11 people: 6 dudes named Herb and 5 Spice Girls. Eleven herbs and spices. Brilliant.
For that fan who Sherlock’d this gag, KFC had a special treat.
The fried chicken chain commissioned this epic portrait of @edgette22 being carried by the late Colonel Sanders. Truly an epic sight.
Dreams DO come true. #GiddyUpColonel

The painting is said to be made by ad agency Wieden+Kennedy, the same folks who worked on the Old Spice commercials.
Man, we hope KFC does another low-key gag soon. We’d love to hang a custom portrait like this over our bed. Gives us something to stare at while thoughts of extra crispy thighs sing us to sleep.
