There may almost be as many bacon memes on the internet as there are cat videos. Almost.
Oscar Mayer has embraced the internet’s love of bacon and made it its own.
Instead of saying it with flowers or, with diamonds … say it with bacon.
This is a brilliant parody of every ad trying to use romance to sell.
Plus, it’s backed up with a dedicated micro site and online gift shop.
All in all, it’s a nice bit of advertising that is going to win friends and, no doubt, market share. After all, you don’t make friends with salad!
Plus, there is lots of hammy acting. (Pun intended.)
The Bacon Cut and Design Chief, who is really some kind of Baconologist, at Oscar Mayer explains the uniqueness of every piece of this, the most noble of meats. A noble meat that comes from, as Homer Simpson put it, a’magical animal‘.
Don’t forget the Four C’s when choosing your perfect piece of bacon: cut, colour, cure and consistency.
You can order yours today at SayItWithBacon.com, unless it has sold out. (PS. no shipping available to Australia).
Finally, there may just be an answer to that age old question: bacon, is there anything it can’t do?
