With everything else going on in the world at the moment, it might have been easy to overlook the start of "Movember," the mustache-growing charity challenge designed to raise funds for men's health.

However, KFC decided to do its bit for the movement in France, where it gave Colonel Sanders a temporary clean-shaven look. Now, he can start out with a fresh face and grow back his facial hair throughout the rest of the month.

The Colonel's hairless mug appeared this weekend on packaging and on a store front in Republique, Paris in a campaign that ran on social media for the day. The effort comes from Sid Lee Paris and is the first time the brand has done an activation around the campaign.
