Ala Groupon a few years back, Oscar Mayer is sending a man cross-country with only one item and this time it's... BACON. Yeah, a dude is driving from New York to L.A. with no cash, no credit cards, no gold. All the Bacon Barter, Josh Sankey, has to make it from the Empire to the Golden State is a trailer full of Oscar Mayer's new Butcher Thick Cut Bacon bricks. Although Josh looks nothing like him, all I can picture is John Goodman's Walter character from "Big Lebowski." This seems very much like a Walter-thing. And it may be amazing. Or it may be the very en vouge bacon's Jump the Shark moment. Either way, it is intriguing. And making me hungry.
