One Degree of Kevin Bacon

bacon.png

The ubiquity of Kevin Bacon has now reached a new, strange peak with the actor playing his own biggest fan in this bizarre new advert for a US net TV service.

The ad, for Logitech's new internet TV, details how a Bacon-loving obsessive can utilise their services to further follow his hero. Alternating between part funny and part creepy, it's a memorable way to promote the benefits of Google TV, which launches in the UK next year.

The scary tagline ('If you think it, you can watch it') brings up all kinds of badness though and will highlight the service as a definite must-have for all stalkers. A niche audience but an audience nonetheless.
