Colonel Sanders goes for gold

Perhaps best known for playing Kate Winslet's smouldering and snobbish fiance in James Cameron's Titantic, Billy Zane takes on a whole new role in this latest spot for KFC.

Donned from head-to-toe is shiny metallic paint, Zane plays an impressively luminous Colonel Sanders who appears to have acquired the Midas touch.

With his gold books, gold paper, gold trays, and 'gold' fish, the outlandish display of gold is aimed at emphasising KFC's newest flavor, the Georgia Gold Honey Mustard BBQ.

This isn't the first time the iconic fast food mascot underwent a makeover, with Colonel Sanders debuting a younger (and dreamier) new look last year.
