Kevin Bacon dishes on benefits of eggs in web film

Most people are familiar with the parlor game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" in which players attempt to connect an arbitrary actor to Kevin Bacon.

This web film for the American Egg Board by Grey New York connects Kevin Bacon to something only one degree away: eggs.

"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," the actor said in a statement.

In the video, Bacon materializes on a woman's kitchen counter as she prepares eggs — with a side of bacon. She quickly learns the virtues of eggs and that the Hollywood star does not care for bacon puns.

A behind-the-scenes video is also available.
