Move over, Bacon!

Actor Kevin Bacon turns 56 today, July 8, 2014. The Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner has appeared in films such as Footloose, Diner, JKF, Apollo 13, and many others. See his filmography on IMDb.

But move over, Bacon. There’s something leaner: Tasty Sizzlean!

That’s right, I’m using Kevin Bacon’s birthday as an excuse to post this 1985 Sizzlean commercial with the classic line, “Move over, bacon!” Watch the bacon fly off the plate and through the air to make room for a less fatty alternative. Sizzlean was a cured meat bacon substitute that had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s but was apparently manufactured until 2005. It claimed to be 50 percent leaner than bacon. “So why sizzle fat? Sizzlean!”
