What can you say about Eagle Man? We grew up with this commercial, and even remember the first time we saw it. Even at that tender age, we wondered how in God’s name Eagle MAN was laying eggs.
This version has been slightly modified, Chicagoans will remember (and probably be able to mimic with alarming fidelity) the Eagle Man’s original line, “I’ve…got…something…for… you!” It’s not the words. It’s the way he said it.
Anyhow, here it is. The infamous, the inexplicable, the Eagle Man!
