Must-Try New Food: Kenny Rogers’ Bacon Roast
Just when you thought you’ve tried all food combinations out there, you’re totally wrong. For a foodie like me, I’m always up for trying new things but I always have my favorite guilty pleasures. And those would have to be Ice Cream,Tempura, Chicken, and of course #Bacon. So can you even fathom the gastronomic thought of bringing two of those together? Wow, it’s bound to be awesome. And Kenny Rogers’ did just that – with Kenny’s Bacon Roast delight!
#AwesomeTogether Animated Short Film
As if the new pairing wasn’t enough, Kenny Rogers’ made things more exciting by unveiling it through an animated short film. Starring by none other than the awesome couple Solenn Heussaff and Nico Bolzico or #SosBolz as many fondly call them. I’ve been following them on social media for quite a while and I tell you, they’re one of the goofiest and most relatable celebrity couples out there. So it was without doubt the film was going to be a funny and entertaining one.
Before the reels turned, everyone was treated to Kenny Rogers’ favorite chewy gooey brownies. So now the million dollar question is, “Does love really win despite all odds?” This is exactly what Kenny Rogers Roasters tries to answer with the short film. It was so amusing as the film used animation to tell about the story of Sosy (a sultry hen) and Bolzi (a hunky pig with rockhard abs).
The pair meet and fall in love at the Roasters Farm. Their parents, however, object to the love affair, prompting the star-crossed lovers to defy traditional family expectations and embark on an epic journey for a chance at eternal togetherness.
Sosy and Bolzi’s love story to was brought to life by visionary director Avid Liongoren. He’s the man behind highly acclaimed animated live-action film Saving Sally. Despite its dramatic premise, Liongoren wanted to inject a sense of fun and adventure to “Awesome Together.” The anthropomorphic characters of Sosy and Bolzi were inspired by Kenny’s brand ambassadors and “IT couple” #SosBolz who also lent their voices and personalities to the star-crossed lovers—and to great results.
After the film preview, the crowd was treated to a short Q&A with the couple. Everyone kept giggling seeing how cute and ‘kulit’ the couple was with each other. To say they were #AwesomeTogether, is such an understatement.
