It’s Easter weekend, and while we don’t get baskets filled with foil-wrapped chocolates and peeps anymore (we prefer to drink our calories), we still like to get into the spirit. But since our spirit is slightly warped, our minds turned toward less traditional ways to celebrate, like funny Easter pictures, videos, joke and the like.
So with that in mind we went on a virtual Easter egg hunt in search of our favorite and most memorable egg-inspired moments from pop culture. Featuring famous faces like Lady Gaga, Faye Dunaway, and Gwen Stefani, plus some super fun egg art, it’s really an egg-celent way of celebrating the weekend. At least, that’s what we think.
Let’s start with a classic clip from the 1980s, with the Rockettes shilling L’Eggs pantyhose. Remember, ladies, NOTHING beats a great pair of L’Eggs in the egg-shaped container.
The famous Faye Dunaway, in a truly bizarre Kazumi Kurigami commercial for Parco where she peels and eats and egg. Celebrities will do strange things for a paycheck — especially for foreign brands, and during a time before the internet, when they had no idea it would be viewed by American audiences.
Speaking of unique (which we weren’t, but that’s okay), here is the legendary Divine with the equally amazing Edith Massey, from John Waters’ 1972 film Pink Flamingos. Edith loves eggs, and here she’s experiencing a little egg paranoia.
Screaming eggs who realize life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
This is your brain on drugs, BTW.
And now, a slideshow of some of extra special eggs! Can you name them all?
