Six degrees of education: Kevin Bacon inserted into Wayne State’s webpage

Is Kevin Bacon attending classes at Wayne State University? The schools homepage appears to have been taken over by the actor.

Wayne State’s web team explains:

The Wayne State Web team hasn’t done anything fun for April Fool’s Day in the last few years and we have a new homepage, so we *had* to do something.

One day while we were out walking on campus, taking a quick break from sitting in front of our computers all day, we started talking about the internet phenomenon about hiding bacon.

That’s when the idea hit: we could hide Kevin Bacon on our website! After all, there are six degrees of Kevin Bacon, right? If he *is* everywhere he should also be at Wayne State.

One of our graphic designers, , found some stock images of the famous actor and worked them into two of the main photos we have on the homepage. We loved the results and had him work up a few more for April Fool’s Day.

The goal was to be subtle but funny. We think it worked.
