Oscar Mayers Announces App to Awake Users to the Smell of Sizzling Bacon
Oscar Mayer cites the fact that two million people have tagged "#Bacon" on Instagram and the fact that bacon is one of those foods that people don't seem to get tired of eating. This is a novelty item and promotion that will only run through April 4. So those looking to get the complete app + plug-in need to move with haste. The innovative technology comes direct from the labs of the Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.
It bears mentioning that Oscar Mayer has a history of making novel pitches for their products. The Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile continues to tour the country after more than seven decades. The hot dog shaped vehicle has endured World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Watergate, and both Gulf Wars. This latest app may not make such a big mark on history, but it does add to the company's unique image of American exceptionalism.
