How much is enough when it comes to bacon? You can never have too much bacon as far as I’m concerned. Bacon is one of the three essential B’s in life: BACON, BUTTER, and BUNYAN’S The Pilgrim’s Progress.
When I was told that bacon was trending on YouTube and Facebook I thought, “Well, of course, why wouldn’t it?” Imagine my surprise when, lo, I realized that I had fallen prey to one of the classic blunders… the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia; but only slightly less famous is this: never assume they are speaking of that most delicious part of a nutritious breakfast when they tell you that bacon is trending on social media.
As it turns out, even with all the wonderful sights and smells of pig night behind us, and having been awakened with the smell of strong coffee and the crack and sizzle of bacon, you had just better toughen up buttercup and wipe the sleep dust from your eyes, breakfast is not yet served, because it’s Kevin Bacon…
Jumpin’ Jehosaphat! Kevin Bacon? “Chip” from Animal House, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” Kevin Bacon?
Yup, none other. Seems he did a parody on the forgotten 1980s on YouTube that has gotten the online video world footloose and fancy free. I was in the Navy during the 1980s and the only thing I remember about that decade was that it was ushered in by Jack Nicholson and Dan Aykroyd and that it was ushered out by Jack Nicholson and Dan Aykroyd.
Jack Nicholson ushered in 1980 with the his portrayal of “Jack Torrance” in The Shining and closed out 1989 with his portrayal of the “Joker” in Batman.
Dan Aykroyd ushered in 1980 with the his portrayal of “Elwood Blues” in The Blues Brothers and closed out 1989 with his portrayal of the “Dr. Raymond ‘Ray’ Stantz” in Ghostbusters.
Sorry. I digress. So what’s all this hubbub over Kevin Bacon? Appartently, Kevin Bacon is hot and trending. He stars in a hot television show, “The Following.” Not only that, but this year is also the 30th Anniversary of his movie, Footloose. Kevin Bacon was Jimmy Falon’s special guest on The Tonight Show and the hooplah was reported by The New York Daily News yesterday. Kevin Bacon’s exciting entrance on television was uploaded to The Tonight Show’s YouTube Channel, and at the time of this writing, can boast over 4.7 million views. Check out the video below.
