With vinyl wraps now being used to decorate cars, Ford has decided to take the trend up a notch by wrapping the Fiesta in man\'s favorite slice of meat: bacon.
According to the American carmaker, 10 giant strips of bacon are \"rolled around a Fiesta for a carb-free ride.\"
You don\'t have to worry about strangers peeling the bacon off your car since the design is actually a graphic rendered in vinyl.
Other bacon-wrap designs being offered by Ford are:
* Bacon Racing Stripes, featuring two pieces of bacon on the car\'s hood, mimicking the classic dual racing stripes; and
* Side of Bacon, with two individual strips of bacon that wrap over the rear wheel, \"popular among those on a diet\"
\"It\'s no secret that bacon inspires a lot of passion, and that\'s what the Fiesta celebrates,\" said Ford Fiesta marketing manager Liz Elser. \"Our customers have a hunger for self-expression. Plus, it\'s just awesome to drive down the road in a piece of bacon.\"
In case you\'re wondering why Ford is doing this seemingly nonsensical stunt, it is to celebrate International Bacon Day tomorrow, August 31st. Yes, there is such a day. Who knew, right? Our pork-loving senators and congressmen would be proud.
