I walked by my neighborhood KFC today and noticed Colonel Sanders was all gussied up again!
I’ve lived in Ebisu for almost two years and have seen Colonel Sanders cos-playing in the past. Today I finally Googled why KFC Ebisu even bothers to dress him up. Turns out, Ebisu’s KFC is one of only seven of the thousands of KFCs in Japan to dress up their Colonel Sanders.
A few of his past cos-play photos found on Instagram:
My favorite has to be Colonel Sanders as Goku from Dragon Ball (the orange outfit holding the ball). So funny. If you’re ever in Tokyo and in Ebisu, do please check out the Colonel Sanders. You might be lucky and see him in some strange outfit. It is a sight to see.
Stay weird, Japan.
