Why is there a picture of Colonel Sanders in Rachel, Nevada? MJ0428 8/29/09 6:43 PM
In a small place called Rachel in the state of Nevada in a field on Groom Road, there is a picture of Colonel Sanders of KFC fame.  Does anyone know if this is new or if someone hacked in and placed that image there, or if the town put it in the field there to attract tourists????

Someone seems to have actually placed a huge picture of the Colonel apparently so Google would take a snapshot when the satellite came around to photographing the are?

ah...the closeness I'd believe to Area 51 might just explain that "oddity" eh?

It's an actual KFC ad campaign. You can read about it here:

According to the article, KCF placed the image on the ground there. It is not a website hack.
