Kevin Bacon has traded off the whole “six degrees” thing in ads for years. Now it’s time to put the Bacon to work.
And that he does in an amusing if obvious campaign from Grey New York promoting eggs on behalf of the American Egg Board. Because after all, nobody knows eggs better than bacon. Or Bacon.
The online video gets surprisingly suggestive, as Kevin puts up with some heavy flirting from a married woman who discovers him just lying on her kitchen counter one morning. And the spot doesn’t tire of puns, even though Kevin claims not to enjoy them.
He does enjoy his eggs, however.
“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.”
