Does Baconalia Cross the Line Between Clever and Esoteric?

Summary: Denny’s Restaurants recently began promoting their new bacon-themed menu, titled Baconalia: a Celebration of Bacon, featuring heart-stopping delicacies like Bacon Meatloaf and a Maple Bacon Sundae. And while the rationale behind hosting a limited-time bacon feast is easy to understand (Americans love them some bacon), the advertising behind it (namely, the name of said celebration), for many of those same Americans, might not be. And that’s potentially quite dangerous. By now, everyone who works ad industry has had the acronym KISS thrown at us at least once.
