Kevin Bacon stars in a new campaign from Gray New York promoting eggs on behalf of the American Egg Board, because what goes best with eggs? Bacon, and in the Kevin variety apparently.
A two-minute video was released as part of the campaign, featuring your average American housewife cooking her morning eggs, when she says to herself “There’s no better start to the day then eggs for breakfast. Except maybe eggs with a side of….” – at this point Kevin Bacon appears, lying seductively across her island bench top and says “BACON!”.
After a few bacon and egg related puns (which Bacon apparently doesn’t like) the woman’s husband comes into the kitchen to discover the two getting a bit too friendly after the woman decides to sniff Kevin, “Because nothing smells better than Bacon”.
The actor has said of the campaign in a statement, “With a last name like Bacon, I’m the obvious choice, and I’m excited to be a part of the new Incredible Edible Egg campaign,” Bacon says in a statement. “I like the creativity behind the idea, and I’ve always been a big fan of eggs. They’re a nutritional powerhouse and I never get tired of them because there are so many ways you can eat them.”
So, who’s hungry?
