Fast food restaurants have really figured out how to get on the news cycle lately — namely through doing weird stuff that makes no sense.

Not six months ago, Darrell Hammond resurrected the corporate mascot of Colonel Sanders to sling fried chicken at a hungry America. And now, for a reason that is very unclear, fellow Saturday Night Live alum Norm Macdonald is stepping into the three-piece suit to replace him.

KFC Chief Marketing Officer Kevin Hochman explained it

For the first ads, we rebooted things that made Kentucky Fried Chicken the most favorite chicken brand in the world. We brought back the Colonel's iconic office, his white stretch limo, and the children's mandolin band he outfitted with instruments and white Colonel Suits to create authentic Kentucky bluegrass music. And the new set of ads are more of that same homage to the things that made Kentucky Fried Chicken such an important part of American families.



This is pretty dumb. But we can't bring ourselves close enough to care about any part of it.

Just like McDonald's idiotic revamp of the Hamburglar.



Remember that? It doesn't matter.

KFC wants you to print your pictures on its new bucket of chicken.

Talk about pic in the bucket! (Sorry.)

For some reason, maybe to get attention like this, KFC Canada has unveiled a bucket of chicken that prints out your cell phone pictures via bluetooth.

You know, that thing you've demanded for decades.

According to the Daily Meal:

The idea is that KFC customers order a bucket of fried chicken, take a photo on their smartphone, and print out a Polaroid photo from the bucket.

It seems that the printer and phone connect via Bluetooth. All you have to do is press the "Snap" button and the Polaroid-like photo prints out.



KFC Canada also released this snazzy video with a group of hip youngsters using the thing.



No one knows why KFC would want to do a thing like the Memory Bucket as it's called. Though KFC Canada is approaching its 60th birthday, so maybe that.



It's just another miracle of modern fast food science, like Pizza Hut's projector box or Pizza Hut's hot dog stuffed pizza.

Come to think of it, Pizza Hut has led the last revolutionary decade of useless technological food goods. We have a new contender!

Yes, that is a Double Down (you know, the sandwich with chicken instead of bread) with a beef patty and bacon in the middle. Your heart valves just closed reading that sentence.

Lights Out: Leave it to Peter Serafinowicz to produce a KFC commercial that renders its viewer incapable of eating anything ever again.
