Bacon Is Money: Man Launches Cross-Country Trip Fueled by Trading Bacon

YouTube

An actor has set off from New York with his sights set on Los Angeles, but he’s not carrying any cash or plastic — he’s lugging only that universal currency: bacon.

As part of a savvy promotional campaign for Oscar Meyer’s thick cut bacon, Josh Sankey has a trailer full of the pork product, and is looking to trade its crispy goodness for everything from cab rides to room and board to toiletries.

Using the handle and hashtag “baconbarter” on Twitter, Sankey is tracking his trip and taking offers from interested parties. Quick example: an off-campus house at Purdue University, which tweeted, “if you’re driving through IN and want to visit Purdue, we have couch space and 29 girls obsessed with bacon!”

The trip may not be kosher, but it’s chugging right along: track his progress at the website baconbarter.com.
