As the upcoming election coverage begins to flood our TVs and radio, candidates are trying to distinguish themselves from the others. One candidate is using bacon.

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz shared his unique bacon cooking technique in a video titled "Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz" from IJReview.

Cruz wrapped bacon around the barrel of an assault rifle and covered it with aluminum foil. Next, he fired some rounds at a target. Then he revealed the sizzling bacon and took a bite.

It's unconventional, but...bacon.
