KFC logo is unrecognisable with surprise new look

He's one of the most famous fast food mascots around, along with the likes of Ronald McDonald and Burger King's ingeniously named The Burger King. But KFC's Colonel Sanders has been left almost unrecognisable by a surprise logo change which has shaved years off his appearance.

The Colonel's moustache was completely removed on 1 November to raise awareness of Movember, a month in which participants attempt to grow their own moustache while raising money for charity. It's certainly a bold new look for a familiar face (for more surprising advertising examples, take a look at our best print ads of all time).
