Nick Jonas “Bacon” is a pretty straightforward song thematically: He wants to throw some bacon on it. We know this because he says it a lot throughout the song. (For the record, I would let Nick Jonas throw bacon on me, but there would be terms and conditions up front. I would also accept a healthier substitute food, like mango slices.)
Since diners are the best places to get bacon — in New York City, anyway — Nick spent a portion of Sunday night (August 28) performing “Bacon” at the Tick Tock Diner, located directly across Eighth Avenue from Madison Square Garden, home of the 2016 VMAs. And because it’s never fun to dine alone, he brought in a whole crew of friends to help bring the song to life (including another Jonas Brother, because of course). Here are all the cameos from Nick’s VMA “Bacon” performance.
The actor/comedian also starred in DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” video, so he’s clearly in good with the Jonas dynasty.
Osokow, the host of Nick and Demi Lovato’s Future Now Tour, paired up with New York Giant Beckham for a quick cameo (and an amazing-looking burger and pancakes combo).
Joe Jonas (And His Band, DNCE)
Reigning Best New Artist winners DNCE posed for an epic selfie with Nick and, well…
Branden Miller (a.k.a. Joanne The Scammer)
Who also tore up the VMA White Carpet before the show.
Another DNCE music video star — and also, you know, a world-famous model.
A$AP Ferg & Fabolous
The two New York rappers sat down for a meal at the diner and just happened to see Nick when he walked by singing. Convenient.
Ty Dolla $ign
Ty’s featured on the track, so it only made sense for him to show up and sing his part. Outside. In the middle of Midtown Manhattan. Outside of a Duane Reade. It was pretty great.
