Cock-A-Doodle… Sizzle?

Post a Comment

You’ve tried everything to wake up: from setting your smartphone alarm clock to the blaring of obnoxious sirens or your favorite song to making use of the satisfying snooze button and hearing those sounds again at a later time, which, like a cockroach, keeps… coming… back. It probably makes you a lot more frustrated than relieved. Maybe you’re old school and choose to hear the pealing of a classic twin bell alarm clock. Well, enough of all that futile fanfare— here is something that will do a much more effective and delicious job:

The Wake Up And Smell The Bacon iPhone app by Oscar Mayer shows the image of a rotating skillet instead of the typical two clock hands. You will wake up at the time you set the alarm to by hearing the crackling sound of bacon bathing in a sea of grease.

Even better, if you enter a contest at the Oscar Mayer website and prove just how enamored you are of Oscar Mayer bacon by answering a few questions, you may win a device that attaches to the headphone jack of your iPhone. What makes it special? It will engage another of your five senses by discharging the scent of bacon.

The promise of breakfast? Now that is something that won’t make you wrap your pillow around your ears. If the titillation proves to be too much, you can, well, actually fry some real bacon afterwards by firing up your stove. It’ll just take a little more effort, of course.

So give it a shot and see if you can win—you may never miss your subway stop ever again and actually get excited about being jolted out of that power nap.

Not convinced yet? See if the Oscar Mayer promotional video (which includes bacon roses and a dreaming woman floating through space, among other things) doesn’t tap into your wildest, tastiest fantasies.

The contest ends April 4, 2014. So ensure your place in an olfactory utopia and enter today.
