His culinary creation full, he took just a few slurpy bites and proclaimed to his greater than 304,000 followers, “That’s pretty good.”
His submit topped 229,000 likes and gathered greater than 6,600 feedback.

One other added, “Your voice is so soothing when you whisper like this,” whereas one smitten fan merely implored, “Yes Kevin. Whisper to me.” Nonetheless, one other remarked that Bacon’s calming narration had a medicinal profit and “lowered my blood pressure.”
One appreciative viewer even instructed Bacon was the right savior for a tumultuous yr rocked by the coronavirus, noting, “After seeing this I know 2020 will get better. @kevinbacon is the hero we need and love.”
