Biff Tannen Sold Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Well, honestly it wasn’t Biff Tannen that sells some of that world famous Kentucky Fried Chicken but Thomas F. Wilson. Who played Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future trilogy.

Actually in all honesty he doesn’t even sell the chicken in this 1983 television commercial. I guess I haven’t done a very good job of this post in hindsight. I mean when you get down to it the ad is actually about the deliciousness of those KFC Buttermilk biscuits.

Having said that – I think it is fair to say the actors in the commercial at the very least sell how tasty the food is, right?

At the very least those biscuits had to taste better than what Biff Tannen normally ended up getting in his mouth in the films.

I heard Tom F. Wilson is a stand-up comedian!


That is correct – one of his memorable skits in fact involves the types of question he normally is asked about his role in Back to the Future.
