Watch: Kevin Bacon Reprises Favorite Film Roles in This Fun UK Ad
For whatever reason, everybody loves Kevin Bacon. After all, he can be linked to anybody by way of The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, and he's just an all around good guy. Lately, Bacon has been busy on the small screen on the Fox serial killer drama series "The Following," but across the pond, he's been appearing on TV in another capacity. As many actors do, Bacon has partaken in an international advertisement, but this one is awesome because it has him reprising his roles from films like Apollo 13, A Few Good Men, Hollow Man, Animal House and even Friday the 13th. Why can't all advertisements be this clever and great?
Here are the two advertisements from the United Kingdom featuring tons of Kevin Bacon (via Movies.com):
The advertisements are for the United Kingdom's digital communications company EE, and we're glad they're schilling movie tickets and downloads this way. Big points go to whoever was smart enough to include Bacon's appearance in the original Friday the 13th, even if the arrow isn't exactly where he was shot in the film. And while we're nitpicking, we'd like to point out that while Kevin Bacon was definitely in Animal House, he wasn't part of the toga party (though that Kevin Bacon seems to be mixed with the one from Footloose here) he was actually one of the douchebags in that film). Still, this is certainly amusing.
