He’s not usually thought of as a sex symbol, but if you’ve always had a secret crush on KFC ’s Colonel Sanders, a new game could come as music to your ears.
The bizarre game, called ‘I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator’, lets you virtually date the Colonel.
Admittedly, the Colonel depicted in the game looks a lot more attractive than KFC’s version (no offence to the Colonel).
The game has appeared on Steam this week, and surprisingly appears to actually have been created by the food chain.
A description explains: “I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator follows you, a promising culinary student, as you try to date your classmate, Colonel Sanders.
“Throughout 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.

“Do you have what it takes to survive culinary school? Will Colonel Sanders choose you to be his business partner? Or maybe even so much more?
“Find out in the most finger lickin’ good dating simulator ever created—a game that KFC actually made.”
The game will be released on 24 September, and will be available on Windows 7 and Mac OS X.
It comes shortly after a survey by sex psychologist Dr Justin Lehmiller revealed that a quarter of Americans have had a sexual fantasy about a cartoon or anime character.
Meanwhile, the survey, which included 4,000 participants, found that more than half have fantasises about a character from a film or book.
