Check out Oscar Mayer's awesome bacon ad
The meat purveyeor wants people to 'say it with bacon' in the weeks leading up to Father's Day.
Its "Say It with Bacon" ad shows a couple riding in a horse-drawn carriage. The woman hands the man a small box covered with black velvet. He opens the lid to find two glorious strips of bacon. "When words just aren't enough, say it with bacon," a narrator says.
The commercial goes on to draw comparisons between bacon and diamonds. It shows a bacon scientist holding a piece of bacon against a color chart. And while diamonds have their own four "C" grades -- carat, cut, color and clarity -- Oscar Mayer says the C's for bacon are cut, color, consistency and cure.
"Every strip of bacon has its own unique symmetry, like a snowflake," an Oscar Mayer employee says in the spot. "The bacon will tell you how it wants to be cut. All you have to do is listen and the bacon will show you the way."
Oscar Mayer has also unveiled bacon gift sets at its new website, sayitwithbacon.com. Three gift box sets include The Commander, which comes with 18 to 20 pieces of bacon, a stainless-steel money clip and an elegant card for $22. The other sets come with bacon-themed cufflinks and tools that can perform several functions.
The site was sold out of all gift sets Thursday, but Oscar Mayer says it will restock daily.
Oscar Mayer is owned by Mondelez International (MDLZ), a spinoff of Kraft Foods (KRFT).
Do you want to bet the muslims are going to have something to say about this ad:)
