Not to split hairs but I'm pretty sure that top picture was used during the actual timeline.

- Academy Award nominated actor and Republican Activist Randy Quaid talking to reporters during his 2015 bid for Nevada Governor while campaigning in Carson City.
 
KFC Sapporo.jpg

- A KFC restaurant in Sapporo, Japan, one of very few KFCs in the world to retain the classic mansard roof and cupola design used from 1968 to the 1970s.
 
IMG_0486.jpeg

- A now-gone KFC restaurant in the late 1990s, with its signage being a bizarre mixture of three different eras - 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

- A now-rare neon sign with the old sign panel replaced with an updated version with the 1991 KFC logo

KFCChinaimage.png

- Modified image of KFC's grand opening in China in 1974, with the branding changed to reflect the 1974 branding rather than the 1987 branding.
KFC Seasoning.jpg

- A KFC Original Recipe Seasoning bag in 2020, humorously reminding employees not to give the package to "anyone named Popeye or Ronald".
 
Dlanod fire.jpg

- Dlanod (played by Donald Trump) in Americana Overdrive: Vol. III - The Best Chapter (2015), moments before he leaps into the lake of lava after the priest, Joshua Christian (played by Isaiah Washington) tries to convince him to reform. A slight outline around Trump (who was green-screened), as well as a royalty-free fire background, denote the film's shoddy production values.

- A pair of glasses worn by Harley Sanders (a style that became as iconic as his father's white suits) on display at Sanders Cafe.
 
GoetzBumperSticker.png

- An anti-Jesse Jackson bumper sticker released by the Bernie Goetz campaign in 2004, which was controversial due to its comparison of workers voting for Jackson to chickens voting for Colonel Sanders, as well as comparing the African-American Jackson to a president best known for a chicken restaurant due to African-Americans stereotypically being associated as eating chicken. The Goetz campaign defended the bumper sticker, stating that it was not meant to attack Sanders' legacy or any race.
