Happy birthday to the man who dances, sings, cooks, sings, and oh yeah, he acts too. The man whose name is a beloved meat product… Kevin Bacon.

Kevin Norwood Bacon was born July 8, 1958 and has appeared in over 60 films alongside over 3000 actors. To celebrate his birthday, we give you a list of Kevin Bacon-related home goods. Some are wonderful, some are scary. (I’m looking at you Kevin Bacon’s face made out of bacon.) Happy birthday to the one and only, Kevin Bacon!
