If you think you've seen it all in 2020, you haven't, actually, because now KFC and Lifetime have teamed up to make a movie starring Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders, and the internet collectively freaked out this morning.
This morning, Lifetime announced the "mini-movie" entitled "Recipe For Seduction" in a tweet, sharing a movie poster that featured Lopez as a "sexy" (?) Colonel Sanders.
The movie is billed as bring "presented by Kentucky Fried Chicken."
The "mini-movie" premieres Sunday, December 13, on Lifetime in the middle of the day.

A lot of people are simply shaking their heads specifically at Mario Lopez, rather than the actual movie.
This is unprecedented.
