I am not a fan of “BaconMan”

Yesterday I received the following email:

Hey Jason,

As a bacon lover I thought you might be interested in checking out the latest in bacon mania making the rounds…


YouTube: Swinging Hitchhiking Tanning

You can check him out on Twitter too if you’re on there… @baconman

Giving you any Halloween costume ideas? I was thinking this or Tina Fey as Sarah Palin 😉


After reading the email (thanks Rebecca) I checked out the videos, and became confused. What the hell are these videos about? Does BaconMan want to be eaten by a dog? Also what is up with BaconMan’s face changing in the Hitchhiking video (Does he have a brother?).

At this point I am not a fan of BaconMan. I think the videos would be funnier if he was trying to escape the dogs or there was a little more back story. It’s a good idea but just needs to be executed better. If BaconMan reads this, keep it up and do a little more preplanning.

I would like everyone to know that I am not a mindless bacon lover. Just because something is bacon related doesn’t mean I am going to love it. Bacon is not something I take lightly.
