Wake up to a side of the Bacon brothers.
Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael Bacon break into unsuspecting people’s houses to sing about eggs in a new ad by Grey New York.
Not everyone's happy about their eggtrusion - making for some awkward moments.
Following the success of the Wake Up to Eggs with Bacon campaign released last year, the American Egg Board realised two Bacon’s could be better than one.
Grey's 2015 effort for the board won a Cannes Lions in the PR category and, more importantly, boosted egg sales across the country.
In addition to the video, which will run in 15 and 30-second spots on US TV, the campaign includes egg-based recipes and factoids on IncredibleEgg.org, as well as print ads, digital placements and social content to coincide with the annual spike in egg sales around Easter.
