Blogging the Commercial I Just Watched: Hanes “Bacon Neck” feat. Michael Jordan

Someone else has suggested that it's an "Oliver Hardy," but I'm not convinced of that at all.Michael Jordan is sitting next to some guy on an airplane. The other guy is a regular in these commercials, but does he have a name? I don’t know. How does he always manage to be sitting next to Michael Jordan on airplanes? It’s either a mystery no one cares about, or Michael Jordan’s got a boyfriend that he hides in plain sight.

Another passenger keeps leaning forward and staring*. Michael Jordan doesn’t notice, but his boyfriend does. His boyfriend also observes that the starey guy’s t-shirt has got a “bacon neck” – it’s all curly and wavy “like bacon in a pan” and doesn’t look very good. Whereas, with their stay-flat collars, Michael Jordan and his boyfriend “are like twins.”

Michael Jordan disagrees. “No we’re not.” His boyfriend should probably just concede the point because 1) you don’t want to too closely resemble the person you’re dating, no matter what, but especially 2) when the person you’re dating is growing a Hitler mustache**.

*Up to this point, he’s probably always thought he wouldn’t ever stand a chance with someone like Michael Jordan.

**Dude was one heckuva basketball player, but there are some things that even Michael Jordan can’t do, and one of them is rehabilitate a thoroughly discredited image.

      No one’s criticizing. You can’t help who you love. But you love your mom, too, don’t you? Enough to warn her when her ‘stache starts seeming a little bit Hitler? I thought so.

  1. You can certainly see your skills within the work you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe.
    At all times go after your heart.

  2. I pay a quick visit day-to-day a few blogs and websites to
    read posts, except this weblog offers quality based writing.

  3. I think this is among the most vital info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things, The web site style is ideal, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers

  4. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

  5. “Blogging the Commercial I Just Watched: Hanes “Bacon Neck” feat.
    Michael Jordan | 68comeback special” was indeed a good article
    and therefore I actually was indeed very content to read
    the blog. Thanks for your effort,Damien
