Tomorrow, June 12, 2012, is “National Beef Jerky Day.”
A piece of Bigfoot art good enough to eat?
Mosaic artist Jason Mecier used approximately 80 bags (3.25 ounces per bag) of Jack Link’s Jerky products to create the Sasquatch portrait. That’s more than 16 pounds of jerky!
More specifically, the portrait is made up of:
Jack Link’s Original Turkey Jerky (lightest shades)
Jack Link’s Original Beef Jerky and Jack Link’s Teriyaki Beef Jerky (medium tones)
Jack Link’s A1 Steak Sauce Beef Jerky and Jack Link’s KC Masterpiece Barbecue Beef Jerky (the darkest of all the jerky products)
Jack Link’s Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Nuggets (Sasquatch’s eyes)
Jack Link’s Original Jerky Chew and Teriyaki Jerky Chew were used to help fill in a few cracks
The portrait took a total of 50 hours to complete.
(P.S. This is a story and images that were suppose to be embargoed until June 11th, which Cryptomundo respected. But I see that it was released earlier, for example, here and here, by some. Just saying. Even a Beef Jerky Sasquatch publicity secret can’t be kept quiet and from the public for long.)
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
