Kevin Bacon and James Corden make commercial for bacon cologne
The exact nature of the relationship between Kevin Bacon the actor and bacon the food has always been unclear, but James Corden blurred the lines even further on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show. Together, he and Bacon created a black-and-white, avant-garde commercial for Bacon by Bacon, a new cologne which smelled either like bacon the food or Bacon the person. Although the food connection was made explicit by a bathtub full of bacon and absurd poetic lines like “Next to the pancake of your soul, there is only bacon,” even Corden got mixed up by a certain point.
“I’m confused, does it smell like you or smell like bacon?” he asked.
“We smell exactly the same,” Bacon (the man) responded.
