If you haven't had a good, hearty laugh session in a while, you are so in luck right now. Because Kevin Bacon just performed a Mashable PSA called "Free The Bacon," championing the need to increase male nudity on-screen, and if you're not rolling on the floor squealing like a pig by the end of this thing, well, there's just no hope for you.
In the hysterical video, Bacon explains, "There’s a big problem in Hollywood today. In so many films and TV shows, we see gratuitous female nudity. And that’s not OK. Well, it’s OK, but it’s not fair to actresses, and it’s not fair to actors because we want to be naked too."
Then he goes on to issue a call to action for his fellow thesps walking around with belt half open, just in case.
"Gentlemen, it’s time to free the bacon. And by bacon, of course, I mean your wiener, your balls, and your butt," Bacon says. He then goes on to call out "Game of Thrones" for not having equal exposition, saying "you’ve got three sex scenes an episode. How hard would it be to just show one or two wieners every couple of minutes? This is an issue of gender equality. Let me be on the show, c’mon! I’ll play a naked wizard or something."
And it's not like Kevin Bacon has no
third leg to stand on here. He did, after all, let his nether region breathe on-screen in "Wild Things" way back when, and he's totally down for another swing at it.
"Hey Marvel, I have an idea for a superhero. Guess what, it’s me, and I have an infinity stone on the tip of my wiener."
There's so much more in the video, so just finish any gulps of liquid you might have in your mouth right now and click play. You won't be sorry.
