In Soviet Russia: Is not you who fry chicken.
Secret recipe fry you!
I thought that was very funny and was going to say maybe it is a merger with the makers of Chicken Kiev (Ok so Kiev is in he Ukrain but hey I still
remember it being a major soviet city so forgive me).
Jokes aside this was very well spotted and show's your/Violater1's fine attention to the detail most non space savvy people have missed.
Actually the US military has always had capability of putting it's own payloads into space and perhaps method's that you simply won't hear about that
they want to keep secret for strategic reason's such as the possibility of magnetic acceleration launchers built below some of the more infamous
facility's such as Area 51 and also the potential and I believe actually of rail gun based launching system's capable of both anti ballistic missile
defense and also of solid state payload delivery into orbit.
Still whenever I see Russian space program's my mind is cast back to that audio transmission picked up by the Italian radio ham's before Yuri Gagarin
ever got launched, they heard and recorded a Russian astronaut with female voice and sadly also heard her burn up on a failed re-entry, how many
people the Soviet's in the old day's sacrificed for there space glory race though is likely to never be known even after all this time.
Now back to the point you make, in the 70's most US kid's probably knew there space craft by heart, even in the 80's and this substitution of a
soviet rocket (which is down to the ad agency rather than KFC themselves and may be from film stock, show's they were not willing to pay for good CGI
as well) is something they never would have gotten away with until the public lost interest in the space program.
