Tired of Boring Yule Logs? Now You Can Watch Sizzling Bacon Instead

The Applegate Yule Log adds a touch of sizzling bacon to the traditional image of a crackling fire

For decades, the Yule Log has been the ever-present (and, frankly, monotonous) video display that made those without fireplaces feel a sense of homey comfort on their TV screens.

But the regular Yule Log is a thing of the past. Now we have modern twists on the traditional soothing fireplace — like the wacky Yule Logs 2.0 created by artists and graphics designers — but this Bacon Log by Applegate Farms adds some mouthwatering images of bacon cooking to an otherwise stagnant fireplace.

Applegate Farms released a half-hour-long video of bacon sizzling in a pan over an open fire, with all of the hunger-inducing sound effects of crackling and popping you might expect from a bacon video. The Bacon Yule Log can be played on Christmas Day or all year round on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or TV.
