It's Kevin Bacon's Birthday, Making It the Perfect Day to Go Out and Play Chicken on a Tractor
07.08.13 by REELZ
Actor Kevin Bacon has had a remarkable career, starring in both important, critically acclaimed movies (Mystic River) and fun, blockbuster flicks (X-Men: First Class). But no matter how many grown-up movies Bacon makes, in our hearts he'll always be Ren McCormack, the high school kid in Footloose who just wants to dance. Today is Mr. Bacon's birthday, and in honor of his big day we think everyone should throw a dance in town where dancing has been outlawed or play chicken on a tractor.
On second thought, playing tractor-chicken seems kind of dangerous, and there aren't too many dance-free communities. So instead, watch these clips of Kevin Bacon prissing around and playing chicken, because really, he does it better than anyone else ever could.
Nearly twenty years later, we're still confused by a dance-free town populated by a bunch of kids whose footwork would get them into that Fame high school. If anyone has an explanation for how all these kids became first-class dancers overnight, please share it with us in the comment section below.
