A young woman anxiously studies her face in the mirror. Her future self tells us in voiceover: “I remember my first blind date. I wanted to look so nice. The last thing I wanted was - ” She looks down in shock. Her offending lower legs are shown. “Darn it - wrinkly panty hose!” Luckily nobody noticed. Now I wear L’eggs,” Her present day self holds the ovoid L’eggs container up to the camera and then plucks at her pantyhose. “L’eggs,” she explains in a more confident voice, “have memory yarn.” Onscreen text: “L’eggs Memory Yarn”. (The text stretches and returns to shape.) Jingle begins as she walks to a waiting man on a park bench: “She’s got L’eggs ...”. Once seated, the camera is framed on her crossed legs. Also onscreen is the text, “L’eggs. Made In New Zealand.”
