Did you ever make a Bacon Tuxedo?
Did you ever make a bacon tuxedo?
Unfortunately, no. While we were tickled at the idea of a generation of high school kids and groomsmen wearing a bacon-scented tuxedo to one of the most important events in their lives, and certainly do a ton of bacon items, it proved to be prohibitively expensive. So, we did the mockup pictured above and posted it as an April Fools' Day joke. It went viral and soon we were doing interviews about it on the radio and it was being written about in newspapers as if it actually existed. Here is the description that set the world sizzling:
Bacon Scented Bacon Print Tuxedo
There's a theory that everything is better with bacon. We believe that theory with all of our heart. To that end, we are introducing our line of bacon formal wear with Uncle Oinker's Bacon Scented Bacon Print Tuxedo. You can get married in bacon, get confirmed in bacon or go to the Oscars in bacon! Wait until Joan Rivers gets a whiff of you. Each Tuxedo is tailored from chemically treated latex print fabric in one of four different sizes. Best of all, it smells just like bacon sizzling in the pan. Dry clean only.
