Colonel Sanders as guest on What’s My Line? (1964)

This is one videoclip that must have been pulled from the deep back corners of the archives: It’s Kentucky Fried Chickens celebrity spokesman, founder & social icon Colonel Harland Sanders as the weekly guest on the popular CBS game show What’s My Line? (circa 1964). People talk a lot these days about “You are now the brand” or about “Brands coming to life,” well here’s an example of one company that made their brand come to life in the everyday life of its’ founder…RIP my dear old southern friend.
