Is bacon over? Don't think so

March 2, 2009 |  4:06 pm

Picture_2_2 According to the recent "R.I.P Baconmania" video from Win Rosenfeld over at "The  Big Money," the bacon phenomenon is dead. Over. Done.

Well, I don't think so.

Especially not when -- just a few days later -- you hear about Padma Lakshmi hawking the Bacon Western Thickburger for Hardee's, as reported by People.com.  Lakshmi, better known for hosting Bravo's hit series "Top Chef," was directed in a new commercial for the burger chain by Chris Applebaum (Applebaum gave us Paris Hilton in that memorable commercial for Carl's Jr., Hardee's sister chain).

Bacon dead?  Nah.

Which brings me to No. 26 on my list of 1,001 things to do with bacon: Use Padma to sell bacon burgers... and convert bacon's unbelievers.
