Ever wanted to see Mario Lopez as a hunky Colonel Sanders in a KFC-themed romantic movie? Well, your prayers have been answered.
The Saved By The Bell star dons salt-and-pepper hair and rocks the famous mustache in A Recipe for Seduction, a new Lifetime original mini-movie that has to be seen to be believed.
Sponsored by KFC, the 15-minute soap-opera style mini flick is a parody of the network’s famously dramatic storytelling style. However, that doesn’t make it all any less bizarre.
Mario’s Colonel Harland Sanders gets steamy with a young heiress in the flick which has all the elements viewers could ever want: love, secrets, and murder plots!
The plot reads: ‘As the holidays draw near, a young heiress contends with the affections of a suitor handpicked by her mother.
‘When the handsome chef, Harland Sanders, arrives with his secret fried chicken recipe and a dream, he sets in motion a series of events that unravels the mother’s devious plans.

‘Will our plucky heiress escape to her wintry happily ever after with Harland at her side, or will she cave to the demands of family and duty?’
In a statement, KFC promised ‘mystery, suspense, deception, “fowl” play and—at the heart of it all—love and fried chicken.’
With lines such as ‘Secret’s out, chicken man’ and ‘He has a secret recipe that’s going to change the world’, this is certainly gonna to make a mark with viewers.
One wrote: ‘this has been a truly wild year but i never expected to read the words “Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders”.’
Indeed, Twitter users have already shared their delight and confusion about this unique mini-movie.
Another tweeted: ‘After 15 seconds of deliberation, this is now a Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders fan acct… A recipe for seduction! I’m going to become the joker.’
One potential viewer added: ‘At the absolute bare minimum, Mario Lopez should travel around the country dressed as Colonel Sanders in a hazmat suit delivering chicken to promote this.’
A Recipe for Seduction premieres on Lifetime on December 13.
