By now you’ve heard about the “Bacon, Eggs, Cheese and More Bacon” ad from a year ago.
The ad tells viewers that bacon is “better for you,” “better at preventing disease,” and that “better” means “less.”
But the problem with this advice is that bacon does not appear in the ad.
In fact, it’s only in the text box to the right of the ad’s title, and in the words “More Bacon.”
If you click on the image to view it, you’ll find that there’s no bacon.
This is the result of the algorithm that’s been set up to remove bacon from advertisements, and is not the work of a bacon-eating fan.
A spokesperson for the American Bacon Council told Ars that bacon-ad removal is a “one-time process.”
“In this case, the bacon is removed from the ad and placed in a new box,” the spokesperson wrote in an email.
“We have a dedicated team of Bacon Ads Experts and they work closely with advertisers to identify ads that appear in bacon-related ads and remove them.”
The Bacon Ads Expert team is comprised of three people who have been on the job for three years.
In that time, they’ve found more than 500 bacon ads that contain the word bacon in them, and they’ve identified more than 10,000 bacon ads in which the word appears.
The Bacon Ad Experts team has worked with the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to identify bacon ads.
“This is a really exciting project, because we’re seeing bacon ads on television and in print and even on the internet,” says Michael Gerson, the Bacon Ads expert at the American Academy of Family Physicians.
“It’s really important that we find and remove these types of ads.
They’re really bad for consumers.”
Gerson’s team has identified about 400 bacon ads containing the word “bacon” since the Bacon Ad Expert team began tracking ads in 2015.
“When we first started looking at bacon ads, we found that they were a huge problem, and it’s been a really long time since they’ve been removed,” Gerson says.
“That’s the first time we’ve found them and we know they’re out there.”
The group is currently working on a new algorithm that would remove the bacon from the ads, but the team is also looking at other ways to remove the ads that include changing their text to say that bacon can be used in products such as cookies, and even removing ads that make reference to bacon.
“One of the main things we’re looking at is trying to get rid of ads that reference bacon in a negative way,” Genson says.
The new algorithm will take the text from ads that mention bacon and look at other parts of the text to determine if the bacon should be removed.
Gerson has also made a list of other ads that are being removed, and he’s encouraging anyone who sees ads that don’t match that list to send them to the BaconAds Experts team.
The process is far from perfect, however.
The team will use a machine learning algorithm to figure out what bacon ads contain the most bacon.
Once they’ve determined that the bacon in those ads is the most harmful, the algorithm will add it to the list of bacon ads to remove.
“You can’t just say ‘let’s just remove bacon,'” Gerson tells Ars.
“The bacon will always be in the ads.”
For the time being, the process has been a labor of love, and Gerson is optimistic that it will be complete before the end of the year.
“If we can get rid, I don’t see a lot of bacon being in our ads in the near future,” he says.
If you’ve ever noticed bacon in ads, Gerson recommends that you never consume them.
“Baked goods are a bad thing.
You should never eat bacon,” he warns.
