Have you heard about the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?

Oh my gosh, my friends and I used to waste countless hours of study time when we were in school trying to come up with the fastest connection between random celebrities and Kevin Bacon. Too. Much. Fun.

No? Ok, how about the Six Degrees of Separation? The whole idea that everyone on the planet is connected to everyone else on the planet by only six degrees of separation. That you know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows the one other person you’re trying to connect with. Freaky, huh?


Mercure Hotels is trying to prove the theory with their ‘Six Degrees of Friends’ contest. They want to connect YOU with a member of the Bundjalung aboriginal tribe in remote Australia! Can you imagine? That you are only separated from a Bundjalung member by only six connections. Six!

Check out this video:

Ready to find out the theory is true? Do you think Mercure can do it? Find six connections between you and some random Bundjalung on the other side of the world?

Think you’re up for it? If you win, you’ll travel to SIX destinations around the world meeting someone in each place that will bring you closer and closer to your final connection. It’s a seven week adventure that you won’t want to miss; a chance to see if it’s possible and a chance to meet some amazing people along the way. What are you waiting for?

It’s super easy to enter. Simply post a fun, creative video to their #6FriendsTheory Facebook page telling them who you are, what you’re about, and why you’d be the best friend connection in the world.

Good luck! I can’t wait to hear about all the people you meet along the way!
