Some of you might know by now that I have a strange gift for being able to connect teams to Kevin Bacon. I wrote a blog post about it during my time interning with the Frisco RoughRiders which you can read here: Baseball And Bacon. I was sitting around our office in Idaho Falls and saw a picture of 50 Cent wearing an Idaho Falls Chukars hat in his music video “Wait Until Tonight” which can be seen here: Wait Until Tonight. That got me thinking about ways to connect the Chukars to Kevin Bacon and I was surprised but I did find success. Our chain to Kevin Bacon begins with 50 Cent who wore a Chukars hat in his video Wait Until Tonight.
50 Cent was in Get Rich or Die Tryin’ with Terrence Howard. Terrence Howard was in Movie 43 with Hugh Jackman. Finally, Hugh Jackman made a cameo in X-Men: First Class which starred Kevin Bacon. Some of the office guys groaned and said this chain wasn’t strong enough to connect to Kevin Bacon since Hugh Jackman was only in the X-Men movie for less than five minutes so I set out to find another chain.
For the second chain, 50 Cent was in Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ with Viola Davis. Viola Davis was in The Help with Emma Stone. Emma Stone was in Crazy, Stupid, Love with Kevin Bacon.
We can even trace the chain back to Idaho Falls from Kevin Bacon. Kevin Bacon was in A River Wild with Meryl Streep. Meryl Streep was in Death Becomes Her with Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis was in Setup with 50 Cent who wore a Chukars hat in his video Wait Until Tonight.
So that’s it for this edition of Six Degrees Of Separation and I’m sticking to my theory that just about anyone can be connected to Kevin Bacon. What’s your Bacon number?
