How An LA City Councilman Helped KFC Win The Internet

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — With apologies to other members of the Los Angeles City Council, Herb Wesson is now officially the most famous council member – thanks to KFC.

It all started when Twitter user @edgette22 took a second look at the 11 accounts KFC follows on the social media platform.

To review, that’s five original Spice Girls – Geri Horner, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Victoria Beckham – and six verified Herbs: Wesson, Herb Scribner, Herb Waters, Herb Dean, Herb Sendek, and Herb Alpert.

Eleven Herbs and Spices in total – the same as KFC’s “original recipe”.

Wesson celebrated his inclusion on the list by posting a photo of himself and a bucket of chicken.

It’s a revelation that has some crowning KFC – whose eccentric campaign of multiple actors portraying Colonel Sanders has garnered more than a million followers – as the most unexpectedly genius corporate accounts on Twitter.
