It’s the Energizer Bunny’s 25th Birthday

It’s the Energizer Bunny’s 25th Birthday

Promotional items were received. All opinions are my own.

 

It has been 25 years since the Energizer Bunny drummed his way into our living rooms in a 1989 commercial series aimed at poking fun at the competition.

Ever since, everyday people and pop culture enthusiasts alike, have been enraptured with his tenacious spirit and boundless energy.  Comparisons between politicians, celebrities, professional athletes and energetic Americans and the Energizer Bunny happen every day. So much so, in 2006 the Oxford English Dictionary added Energizer Bunny to its lexicon with this definition:

Energizer Bunny n.:  A persistent or indefatigable person or phenomenon.

 

energizer-bunny-birthdayEnergizer’s motivational mascot has shared the stage with characters such as Darth Vader, King Kong and the Wicked Witch.  He has traveled from outer space to the bottom of the sea, and entertained millions at community events and through social media. Advertising Age named the Energizer Bunny to its list of top 10 Ad Icons of the 20th Century.

Ward Klein, chief executive officer of Energizer Holdings, Inc., is one of the executives who helped bring the Energizer Bunny to life 25 years ago.  “I do not think any one of us could have predicted 25 years ago the impact the Energizer Bunny would have on people’s lives,” Klein said. “His irreverence and humor are contagious and the positivity he exudes is impactful.” 

Spirit of that’s positivenergy

Age has not slowed the Energizer Bunny down one bit.  Rather, it has motivated and expanded his personal mantra to that’s positivenergy™. In the spirit of bringing that’s positivenergy to the world, the Energizer Bunny has inspired people to race for a brighter world through its one-of-a kind global nighttime running series to help provide

solar power to people around the world who do not have access to safe and affordable electricity In communities across the United States, the Energizer Bunny is a beloved friend and partner to thousands of fire departments across the country to remind millions of people to change their smoke alarm batteries each fall as part of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program.  And, as pink is the color of passionate breast cancer awareness supporters, the Energizer Bunny is there as the company supports cancer research efforts by donating more than $4M to the cause.

 

How Consumers Can Join the Birthday Fun – Bunny Bucks and Facebook

The Energizer Bunny believes birthdays are about celebrating with those around him.   In stores now, consumers can collect Bunny Bucks to turn into money, via a check or deposit into their PayPal accounts.  And, with the holidays just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start stocking up on batteries for all of those holiday gifts you will be giving. The Energizer Bunny will also dole out party favors in the way of coupons throughout the year. 

Everyone is also invited to join the fun on Facebook by, stopping by to wish the Energizer Bunny a “Happy Birthday” on his Facebook wall.  They will also have the chance to enter a special Energizer Bunny Birthday Sweepstakes.

Stay tuned to www.energizer.com and www.facebook.com/energizerbunny for all of Energizer Bunny’s birthday happenings.

Age has not slowed the Energizer Bunny down one bit.  Rather, it has motivated and expanded his personal mantra to that’s positivenergy™ – a commitment to designing products with people in mind and investing in programs that have a positive impact on the world.

It’s time to celebrate!

  4. I’d like to try the Design Under-Cabinet Light.

  5. I’d like to have a Energizer power Inverter to keep my electronics and small appliances running when I’m traveling. It’s great to keep my laptop plugged in while in the car when we go geocaching. I had a cheap inverter a few years back that finally quit on me but I used it a lot. I actually plugged in my big cooker in the car and cooked a Turkey one thanksgiving on my way to work because It took me an hour to get to work and I wanted the Turkey cooked on time and it worked like a charm. I put the seat way back in front and wrapped cardboard in tin foil and set the cooker on it and plugged it in and it road smooth all the way to work cooking while I drove. I’d love to have a nice Energizer Inverter again. My laptop always dies on me when we go geocaching and this wouldn’t happen with a new inverter.
