Kevin Hochman, KFC’s chief marketing officer, says that George was chosen for the new commercials to let people know that the restaurant has the “extra crispy” as second choice, but what younger people won’t understand is that Hollywood has teased Hamilton because of his very dark tanned skin for many years. “Extra Crispy Chicken is fried to a golden brown. George Hamilton isn’t fried to a golden brown, but he is tanned to a golden brown,” says Hochman.
