America chews their way through first ever National Jerky Day

Jason Mecier creates Big Foot Portrait for Jack Links Beef Jerky - Jack Links PR

(Best Syndication News) - It seems like every food is getting a national day of honor, so why not beef jerky. Therefore, on June 12, 2012, there will be the first ever National Jerky Day celebrating the history of the dried meat snack.

Jack Link's Beef Jerky company hired renowned mosaic artist, Jason Mecier, to create a one-of-a-kind tribute to jerky. Mecier created a portrait of Sasquatch using the 100 different varieties of Jack Link's jerky products. The portrait of the legendary creature was created for Jack Link to tie in with their current marketing campaign. This artist has created other works of art with common everyday objects.

Mecier made a portrait of actor/comedian Jerry Seinfeld using dry cereal, a portrait of Condoleezza Rice using rice, and a portrait of singer Taylor Swift using Good & Plenty candy. He also made a portrait of Rachel Ray using beans and noodles, and a portrait of Martha Steward by carefully arranging a veggie platter.

The artwork of Jason Mecier will be on display at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota during National Beef Jerky Day. If you cannot make it out to the mall to see it in person, you can visit Jack Link’s Facebook page at The company will be posting photos of the artwork online.
