Six Degrees of Bacon and BarbacoApparel

Everyone has played the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game (based on the similar Six Degrees of Separation concept) at some point in his or her life. And if you’ve somehow managed to make it this far without so much as even contemplating just how close (or far) Kevin Bacon is from ― say ― Jennifer Lawrence, America Ferrera, Danny Trejo, or any other of the countless celebs you could choose from, then, well, kudos to you. If you’re familiar with the game, you know that you can spend hours (or until boredom sets in, whichever comes first) naming actors that somehow tie in with Kevin Bacon through film or TV connections. Yes, this is a game. And yes, I’m going to play it right now.

This time, however, I’m going to see if I can make this a little more interesting. The real question is ― how does BarbacoApparel tie in with the Bacon? (No, not via our Bacon & Egg tee, but I see where you were going!) Since none of us has ever been in a film, we’ll need to take a slightly different approach. 

Luckily (and gratefully), some of our shirts have somehow made their way into photos with a couple of celebs, so I’m going to see just how far BarbacoApparel really is from Hollywood’s “center of the universe” (which, by the way, now happens to be Dennis Hopper ― and not Kevin Bacon ― according to this Buzzfeed article). Oh, well. I’m still stickin’ with the Bacon.

And there you have it. That's how you play Six Degrees of Bacon and BarbacoApparel. Now if we could just somehow get the man himself to wear one of our shirts. Bacon & Egg tee maybe?

Say no more.
