Kevin Bacon Has 1980′s Awareness Message for Millennials: Favorite App Was ‘Rubik’s Cube’

BaconActor Kevin Bacon is delivering an important message to millennials too busy on their second and third screens to appreciate what he had to go through in the 1980′s.

Currently starring in Fox’s “The Following,” Bacon had a message for all those born after 1985.

“You want to know my favorite app?” Bacon asked. “Rubik’s Cubes.”

He went on to bemoan how technology has made today’s youth ignorant to how hard dating was back in the 80′s, without things like “OkTwinder” (a clever mashup of OkCupid and Tinder).

He continues on but finally gets restless with the short-attention span millennials of today.

“Hey, hey…I’m trying to make a point here. What you guys can’t pay attention for more than two minutes?”
