Norm Macdonald is out and comedian Jim Gaffigan is in as the latest incarnation of Colonel Sanders, the iconic founder of the fast food chicken restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken.

KFC will officially introduce Gaffigan as the “real” Colonel Sanders in a commercial promoting Nashville Hot Chicken slated to air during Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 pregame broadcast.

The 30-second ad, titled “Dream,” features Colonel Sanders waking from an apparently recurring nightmare in which Norm Macdonald has stolen the Colonel’s identity and takes credit for KFC’s runaway hit, Nashville Hot Chicken.

The commercial also marks final appearance of Norm McDonald as the Colonel.
