If you’re a fan of the Late Late Show with James Corden, you’re probably familiar with the show’s band leader Reggie Watts.
The comedian/musician has many talents, and you can now add “Bacon Beatmaker” to the list.
Using Black Label Bacon as his main instrument, Watts jumped in front of a stove and created an impromptu song while cooking the crispy pork. Watts recorded the bacon’s sizzle, the scrape of the skillet, and even the crunch of a greasy bite, in an odd, yet awe-inspiring track.
“As far as I know this has never been attempted,” Watts said.
If you’re familiar with Watts, you know improv is one of his strong points, even when it comes to music, so it’s no surprise that he was able to get the bacon going and put together a full-fledged song out of it.
Also, we were able to catch up with Reggie before he went on his bacon beat quest, and played a little bit of food word association with him. In a very Reggie Watts-impromptu fashion, he all at once confused us, made us uncomfortable, and made us laugh. Now we can never see these foods the same way again.
