I remember when I first saw the Energizer Bunny, do you? He was so adorable, twirling those drumsticks and going, and going, and going! I’m amazed to know that it has been 25 years since the Energizer Bunny drummed his way into our living rooms in a 1989 commercial series!
That pink dude is an official icon. Did you know in 2006 the Oxford English Dictionary added Energizer Bunny to its lexicon? The definition is:
Energizer Bunny n.: A persistent or indefatigable person or phenomenon.
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 Bunnywould have on people’s lives,” Klein said. “His irreverence and humor are contagious and the positivity he exudes is impactful.”
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.
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. The Energizer Bunny will also dole out party favors in the way of coupons throughout the year.
