Now you can get your degrees of separation with Kevin Bacon in Google

The “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” are a variation of the theory of six degrees of separation, which says that a person is connected with any other in the world for up to six connections. In 1994, three students decided to use the actor as a trivia game to show that the world of Hollywood is small, under the idea that any artist in the world can be connected through their roles in films the actor in a maximum six steps.

The issue has become part of pop culture and now took it to the next level by integrating this index to your browser, for anyone to do research about the separation with Kevin Bacon directly on the site.

To search simply enter “Bacon number” followed by the name of a character, which will return a result. For example, by searching with Cantinflas, we are connected with an index of 3, by Shirley MacLaine, who starred in “Around the World in 80 Days” with Cantinflas. Then she and John Lithgow appeared in “Terms of Endearment” and then John Lithgow starred in the movie “Footloose” with Kevin Bacon.

Kevin Bacon What will he think of this? So far has not commented, but although at first he was offended by the game, finally accepted and even created a foundation called SixDegrees to raise funds for charity.
