Earlier this week, we celebrated the weird and wild life of KFC creator, Colonel Harland Sanders, on his birthday. Now this... 

As far as fast-food marketing stunts go, this is definitely one of the weirder ones.

KFC has created a new video game called "I Love You, Colonel Sanders!  A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator".

In the game, you're classmates with a young, sexy - but still gray-haired - anime-style Colonel Sanders at culinary school.  And the entire point of the game is to try to date him.

Quote, "Through your journey, you'll be faced with life-changing decisions that will affect your chances of friendship and love.  But be careful!  Your choices have real consequences with real animated characters' feelings at stake."

The game says it has, quote, "multiple hours of play-through, a secret ending, secret recipes, cooking battles, and [the ability to> earn a degree from a fictional culinary school."

If you're interested (although I'm not totally sure why you would be) it'll be available for free for Windows and Mac computers in two weeks.  

And if you're thinking that a Japanese-Style Anime Dating Sim game for KFC seems completely ridiculous, then you don't spend nearly as much time on the internet as I do to know that in Japan, KFC is A THING. The kind of thing where people put in orders months in advance to have KFC on Christmas.
