Thanks for saving our Bacon.

by Andrew MacGregor

EE: “NHS Workers” - 30s

We like to think that EE's long-serving spokesman, Kevin Bacon, would cover every square inch of the United Kingdom if the price was right. Like much of the global population, however, Covid-19 has stopped Bacon in his tracks. Frustrating times for a bloke who once led a fifteen-thousand-strong conga line.

There are no dance moves or food puns in this 30 commercial, as Bacon sits in front of a brick wall and addresses the camera. Hes particularly interested in NHS workers, who can use their email address to receive unlimited mobile data until October. It may not be personal protective equipment (PPE), but its a commendable gesture.
