Energizer vs Duracell Bunny : What’s the deal? by Jessica Hodges
Friday is always the day for really important discussions at our office. Today the main topic is, who came first? The Energizer Bunny or the Duracell Bunny? In my naivety, I was sure sure sure that the Energizer Bunner was first. I asked my coworker (who was born and raised in Europe) which battery company has the pink bunny? He said Duracell. At the beginning of my research today I thought Duracell ripped off Energizer! Such cheaters, such imitators. But now I’m not so sure..
Energizer Bunny History: Born in 1989
Duracell Bunny History-Born in 1973!!
I was disappointed. Either way, I’d like to wish the Energizer Bunny and Energizer Batteries a belated Happy Birthday!
At least he’s been around for 20 years? Listen to this, he’s an adage century icon!
“The Bunny has become the ultimate symbol of longevity, perseverance and determination,” says Mark Larsen, communications category manager for Energizer. During the past decade, everyone from politicians to sport stars used the Energizer Bunny to describe their staying power.”
I’d much rather hug the Energizer Bunny and I really think I have before (aka probably some creepy guy inside a Energizer Bunny suit.) Anyways, check out the Energizer Bunny Store for products like these:
So next time your boss asks for energizer batteries? Buy him some of these as well.
Read about in on Wikipedia too.
