Chicken Sandwich Launched into Stratosphere

KFC’s campaign is inaccurate; the World View balloon that was launched this morning is taking the sandwich into the stratosphere for four days. It’s not going anywhere near space.

In any event, the promotion is paying for World View’s flight test of its balloon and remote sensing observation system, so there is that.

I don’t have a TV, so I’m a little behind on the Dr. Who-like regeneration of Colonel Sanders. Can someone explain why Rob Lowe is playing the colonel as Rob Lowe? He seems to be making no attempt to imitate the voice or mannerisms.
