Oh, ZZ Top, I have no memories of this song. Not of this version, anyway. But I DO have memories of the many commercials this song was featured on. In fact, as a boy, I had no idea this was a “real” song. All I knew was that this was the theme song for L’eggs pantyhose. As a kid, I didn’t really know what pantyhose actually was. I only knew two things:
1. Those plastic eggs looked cool and would make for awesome Mork from Ork-type space vehicles for my Star Wars action figures.
2. Those eggs had something to do with women’s legs.
As I got older, I was less interested in the eggs and more interested in the legs. And thanks to YouTube, I had an extreme flashback. I’ve embedded the video below, but I vividly remember that commercial for Sheer Elegance L’eggs. I was just going to watch it for the nostalgia, but then I realized I kinda knew that particular commercial by heart; when I saw that woman sitting at the table, and the woman walking the Dalmatians over the bridge, that shot of the black silk negligee. . .yowza.
Normally, I tend to frown upon artists who farm out their music for rando merchandise, ZZ Top, but in this case, I totally get it, guys.
