Bacon Kevin Bacon

Guess who this bust is supposed to be (pretend the title wasn’t such a dead giveaway)

Someone told me you were tasty.
Nope, it’s not Conan O’ Brien. The very red bust is actually supposed to be a likeness of Kevin Bacon of Footloose fame or if you haven’t heard of the movie (doubt it), you’ve probably already tried or heard of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon (no? click the link and get out of your basement, will ‘ya.). 
Anyway, an artist by the name of Mike Lahue was commissioned by J&D Foods, a company that sells anything and everything bacon (including bacon-flavored lip balm), to create this slightly weird bust of a man who is most famous for having worked with nearly everyone in the entertainment industry.

Here’s another picture. Now can you guess what it’s made of (humor me and pretend you didn’t read the title)-

You look kind of flushed, mister
Why, it’s made of bacon of course! To be exact, the Bacon Kevin Bacon is made of actual bacon bits held together by coats and coats of lacquer (and I was thinking it would be actually edible). Weird though it may be, they have the best intentions at heart. The bust (which looks a bit more like Conan O’ Brien than Kevin Bacon to me) is being auctioned off at a cool starting price of a US$280 and all proceeds will go to Ashley’s Team, a non profit organization that helps children with cancer.

I got the details from Gizmodo.

    1. Seriously, no comments for this? F-ing funny. I have never been a fan of Kevin Bacon’s, but this video made me like him a ltilte bit. Though, it would have been better if he replaced the ice cream cone or magazine with some actual bacon.
