Kevin Bacon Reprises Friday the 13th Role for Commercial

kevin-baconKevin Bacon participated in a few commercials for the UK mobile network EE. The actor good-heartedly slips back into the skin of previous films roles, including his turn in Friday the 13th. See him - with his green tank top, arrow sticking out of his chest – interact with other "Bacons" from A Few Good MenApollo 13 and Footloose.

It's a fun tip-of-the-hat not only to his past, but to practical FX. It's also nice to see him embrace his horror roots, especially since he didn't appear in the documentaries His Name Was Jason or Crystal Lake Memories.

Thanks to colleagues Rob G. over at FEARnet and Brian Collins at Badass Digest for tossing this link around on Twitter.

    Just needed one more Bacon character and it would have been a 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon commercial.

      Mutant Bacon from X Men: First Class was my thought as I watched this.
