Colonel Sanders: Hipster?

I know this is the second KFC post in less than a week, but I do love my fried chicken:)

Anyway, an advertising firm was called upon to create a "new look" for the Colonel, so they decided to turn him into a hipster. "We went with emo glasses, some hair dye and trimmed up that goatee into a soul patch," said the ad guy, "Also, the chin needed some chiseling and the face certainly benefited from minor liposuction." End result? KFC nixed the new image, saying it was "too sexy." And by "too sexy" I can only imagine they meant "looks too much like Jerry Lewis."
