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.

I personally would rather EE got their act together and sorted out signal problems on the mobile network in the UK, though everyone loves a bit of bacon.

He's been in these adverts for months. They also appear before every film in cinemas across the UK.

Sure these have been out for years lol

No, these advertisements are not new. However, we don't live in the United Kingdom, so we don't see movies where these have already played endlessly. In addition, they've never been available on the Internet before. That's why they're posted here today. for the thousands of other readers who haven't seen them.

In time, those thousands of other readers will come to hate these adverts as much as I do.

Thanks for posting this. Btw The Following is a really fun thrilling show guys! It's far-fetched but still entertaining.
