Baconsteak (TM): a dream come true!

My brother has long dreamed of marrying the flavours, textures, etc., of bacon to steak, so that he could have the best of both worlds in one food. The recent advances in cloning tissue have only encouraged him, as now the process of creating what he calls Baconsteak -- I guess 'Steakon' didn't test well with the focus groups or something -- could be done entirely in a laboratory, and would not involve the slaughter of animals. Well, my brother and those close to him being creative people, it didn't take a lot of encouragement for one thing to lead to another, and now we have the first wave of marketing for Baconsteak (TM). The nationwide rollout date is unknown, but look for Baconsteak on the menu of your local Howard Johnson's restaurant real soon.

Here's the first spot.

I recommend that you also see the second spot.

(As time goes by, the links to these videos change, so the thing to do is go to OptiTV and search under November 2005 for 'Bacon Steak' and 'Bacon Steak Accomplished'.)

The next thing on the horizon must be a 'helper' for Baconsteak: Shake 'n' Bake Bacon Steak!

Now back to the usual stentorian platitudes...
