Who is Bacon Man?

Is this a new viral video and if so, who’s behind it and why?

We found this series of videos very intriguing, but also pleasantly random, and some of us are even contemplating a Bacon Man costume for Halloween…it was either this or Tina Fey as Sarah Palin!

Enjoy #baconman!

    I have a feeling that may just miss the sexiest costumes of the season list… just maybe.
