Thursday Video: Bacon’s Law

What’s not to love about Kevin Bacon singing to a menagerie of goats and ponies?

Pretty much all of us have heard of the Six Degrees to Kevin Bacon game, or Bacon’s Law. According to Wikipedia, it’s a parlor game where “players challenge each other to arbitrarily choose an actor and then connect them to another actor via a film that both actors have appeared in together, repeating this process to try to find the shortest path that ultimately leads to prolific American actor Kevin Bacon. It rests on the assumption that anyone involved in the Hollywood film industry can be linked through their film roles to Bacon within six steps.”

Well, now the game just got a bit easier by adding two musical connections to Bacon: Matchbox Twenty and the Indigo Girls. That’s right, Kevin Bacon mashed up these artists while singing to his menagerie of goats and ponies. What’s not to love about this?
