After all, even though we see a talking gecko and know he is selling car insurance, he doesn't really hold any significance in our lives. The Energizer Bunny, on the other hand, embodies more.
This rock star pink rabbit has drummed his way into our hearts and homes and has been the symbol of more than just excellent batteries, he represents power and determination and the will to never give up. In short, the Energizer Bunny has inspired and enthralled us with his tenacious spirit and boundless energy... but did you know that he has been doing it for 25 years?!
That's right, it has been 25 years since America's favorite unstoppable icon, the Energizer Bunny, drummed his way into our lives in a 1989 commercial series aimed at poking fun at the competition.
Since that time, comparisons have been made between the go-go-go bunny and politicians, celebrities, professional athletes and energetic Americans so much so that, in 2006, the Oxford English Dictionary added Energizer Bunny to its lexicon with the definition: A persistent or indefatigable person or phenomenon.
Pretty cool, right?
Now that the Energizer Bunny has turned 25, it is clear that age has not slowed him down one bit. Rather, he is a part of even more amazing causes, such as a 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 and helping to remind millions of people to change their smoke alarm batteries each fall as part of the Change Your Clock Change Your Battery program.
So how can we get in on the fun of celebrating the Energizer Bunny's birthday? Two ways:
