He ended up being asked to do a cameo that seemed to come straight from the original series of "The Office." (Embedded here for you to dance along)
This, it should be said, was a group interview. During it, he said the group was split in two and asked to invent a dance.
"They were serious," he told the BBC. "All professionalism went out of the window. I'd spent the past week researching the company and looking forward to being able to express myself and talk about what I love doing."
How did he end up expressing himself?
"I just felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable. I ended up dancing to 'Around the World' by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers," he said.
Perhaps even afterward, he hoped he was being punk'd.
Sadly, not only was he appalled, he didn't get the job. He is still unemployed.
Currys, perhaps attempting to limit the damage of its punky daftness, told the BBC that it would invite all the dancers back for some karaoke.
I'm sorry, I meant for another interview.
A company spokesman added: "Regrettably, the store in question did not follow our official recruitment processes on this specific occasion. We are currently investigating those members of the store who held the recruitment session."
Naturally, I have an idea. Should Bacon and his fellow dancers return for a second chance, perhaps the Currys staff responsible should perform a routine for them.
Perhaps to the tune of Daft Punk's "Lose Yourself To Dance."
This might be filmed and then projected for one month on every screen in every Currys throughout Wales.
