Energizer Bunny (Energizer) Vs. Snuggle Bear (Snuggle)


[yt=425,350]fILdYrxnrf8[/yt]

The American Energizer commercials, produced by DDB Chicago Advertising, originally began as a parody of TV advertisements for rival Duracell. In the Duracell ads, a set of battery-powered instrument-playing toy animals gradually slow to a halt until only the toy powered by a copper-top battery remains active. In Energizer's parody, the Energizer Bunny then enters the screen beating a huge bass drum and swinging the mallet over his head. The creative team at DDB Chicago who conceived and designed Bunny was Peter Bex (art director), Bob Konold (writer) and Lorra Rudman (creative director). They chose All Effects special effects company, and Eric Allard, owner, to build the original Energizer Bunny, a remotely operated vehicle. All Effects operated the Energizer Bunny in most of its first commercials.

Since 1983, the Snuggle Bear has been Unilever's mascot for its Snuggle line of fabric softener. The puppet was created by Kermit Love, the creator of the costume of Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street. The voice was originally provided by Corinne Orr. In a 2006 radio interview, Micky Dolenz stated that he is the current voice of Snuggle.

Well the odds may be stacked against Snuggle, but when backed into a corner his true nature is revealed and has been known to eviscerate his foes.

Snuggle has always been a source of constant amusement for me:

There's a great Robot Chicken clip out there somewhere too. I just can't seem to find it anywhere~

I'm theoretically torn because bunnies, love 'em, bears, love 'em too. But ultimately the Bear gets my vote because he's got more comedic potential for subversive humor. The Energiser Bunny already thinks it's funny.

I find the energizer bunny most insulting to males. HE is mocking you men and your sexual prowess, how could you guys vote for him?
