It is an integrated promotional effort that will bring attention to the many nutritional benefits of the Incredible Edible Egg, just in time for Easter.

“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,” said Kevin Bacon.

“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.”

The actor will be featured in a variety of online video, print, digital and social media ads throughout the year. Grey New York is the American Egg Board’s creative agency, Starcom handles media planning and buying, and Edelman oversees PR and social media.

The USDA reports that per-capita egg consumption grew to 260 in 2014, increasing by more than a dozen eggs per person in the last five years.

Many factors are fueling the spike in egg consumption, including growing interest in protein, health professionals viewing eggs more positively, and the affordability of eggs compared to other breakfast foods.
