Game of Thrones’ The Mountain channels his inner Colonel Sanders in KFC record stunt

KFC has been known to rotate the actors playing its mascot and founder Colonel Sanders but the latest addition to its roster may be the biggest and toughest one yet.


Giant Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson regularly plays The Mountain Gregor Clegane on the show, but has traded in his golden armour for Col Sander’s iconic white suit.

Not content just to promote the Double Crispy Colonel Sandwich, the Icelandic actor also set a ‘world record’ for pulling the most Double Crispy Colonel Sandwiches across a room. Of course, he is probably the only person to ever try hauling such a large volume (700 pounds) of KFC goods

Earlier this week the brand teased the stunt on social media.
