Burger with 1,050 strips of bacon

July 17, 2012 Leave a comment

We thought BK had made a break through in the states with introduction of bacon milkshakes, but we discovered a hidden door to an entirely new next level of genius in Japan. Japanese Burger Kings have launched an campaign of super sizing its whoppers by giving patrons the option of adding 15 extra strips of bacon for 100 yen (76p/$1.24).

Brilliant.

The team at a Japanese news site ordered one with a total of 1,050 strips of bacon. Yeah, that’s an 58,000 calories to a Whopper, but what’s a few calories for the price of happiness?

We’d like six to go, please.

The Bacone!

Bacon, bacon cone, bacon breakfast cone

Bacone: (noun) 1. A bacon cone filled with eggs and gravy, topped with a biscuit.

Doesn’t that look simply divine? This is one treat you won’t see people cone-ing.

When three great things come together…

Hope you all had a great holiday, but it’s not over yet. New Year’s is just around the corner, do you know how you’re going to celebrate?

Rouge Brewing has created an ale based off of Vodoo’s Bacon Maple Doughnut and we know you want to try it…

HP’s Tablet Fiasco: Fundamental Business Lesson

August 17, 2011 Leave a comment

BusinessInsider.com published an article today about HP’s recent TouchPad flop – a fabulous anecdote with a valuable lesson for the ages:  stop trying to copy the competition, dummy!

(This applies particularly if you are a second-rate,  years-behind-the-power-curve PC manufacturer, by the way, but really it’s universal).

After a reasonable amount of buzz and market anticipation prior to its launch, the TouchPad was released to abysmal sales and even worse reviews.  Now, most major retailers want their money back, or at least want the product the hell off their shelves.  Like yesterday.  Most are slashing prices to dump inventory.

The lesson?  Well, the co-founders of 37Signals said it best in their book, REWORK:

“The copycat doesn’t really know why something looks the way it looks or feels the way it feels or reads the way it reads.  The copy is a faux finish.  It delivers no substance, no understanding, and nothing to base future decisions on.  Plus, if you’re a copycat, you can never keep up.  You’re always in a passive position.  You never lead; you always follow.  You give birth to something that’s already behind the times – just a knockoff, an inferior version of the original.”

Man, that burns.

BWBacon Goes To 11

Quality can be an esoteric thing.  Sometimes you simply can’t quantify it or put into words.   However, as a recent re-viewing of a perennial favorite film reminded me, sometimes you can.

At BWBacon we go the distance for our clients and customers, to become indispensable partners in their growth and success.  We’re faster, more efficient, timelier, more intuitive, knowledgeable and respectful, and just a hell of a lot more fun than a lot of our industry counterparts.  We do things differently, in work as in life.  Or, as Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel put it, while some folks just try to make 10 louder, our “numbers all go to 11, right across the board.”

Introducing the Bacon Food Truck

 

Maybe the west coast is the best coast?  The food truck craze that has quite literally been swiffering the nation may have reached its greasy pinnacle.  The Bacon Bacon Truck opened up truck this week in San Francisco (SOMA), offering passersby bacon-infused goodness in many a delicious form.  They’re also offering badass t-shirts that assert what we’ve long held as gospel truth:  you had me at Bacon.

We’re holding out hope that the bacon truck will eventually take cues from the rest of the nation by moving to Denver, driving poorly, congesting traffic and never leaving. In the meantime, we continue to hold down the proverbial bacon fort here in Denver, representing bacon interests of all types, the most clear and present being our interest in finding the best and brightest web, software, mobile and interactive development and design talent in Colorado.  Contact us if we had you at bacon.
