I'm possibly (probably) (definitely) late to the party on this, but I don't even care. BECAUSE ERIK KRATZ IS NOW ACTING IN TURKEY BACON COMMERCIALS WITH ANIMATED CHARACTERS so you're arguments are therefore invalid. AND, there is already whole series of them (hopefully with more to come!) with him in the starring role for Godshall's Meats.
Okay just stop what you're doing and go watch all three of them because they're the stuff internet bolging dreams are made of. Be sure to watch for the TURKEY PIG.
