Bacon and Sausage run for America's "Favorite Breakfast Meat" for Denny's

The video is the latest entry in the chain's animated YouTube series

In Denny’s 23rd video for animated YouTube series "The Grand Slams," Bacon and Sausage go head to head in "The Meat Debate." Bacon runs for a "crispier America," while Sausage stands firm on "linking breakfast and you." Moderators Hashbrown and Bold Coffee put the meats on the spot with audience questions. In a nod to the current political discourse, a skillet asks about Bacon’s "sizzling" role in a "Makin’ Da Bacon" film. "The Grand Slams" series is promoted on Denny’s social channels and has generated more than 169 million impressions since launching in 2014. Past videos have shown the characters in a slam dunk contest, dressing up for Halloween and appearing on a talk show. To create the series, Erwin Penland worked with the production company behind the Emmy-winning "Robot Chicken," Stoopid Buddies Stoodios.
