    I can't really think of any energizer commercials right now. All I can think of is the duracell ones where they say that they are used in space etc.

    you know here I am thinking what other batterie company I can name to pi$s you off. :) The bad thing is, none comes to mind.

    Duracell has a great ad strategy. For some reason they come around as being superiour to everything. Why? The color is more gold, better than silver. The way the copper head falls shut in every ad.

    Energizer has the Bunny. Great to watch the ads but still the color is inferior.

    Bruce, I hope you take my comments as constructive. I am not in advertising but that is how I feel as a consumer. That said, having tried your product I was very impressed. They last and last...still the same ones in my wife vibrator and it is still going. :) (just kidding, we have to replace them once a week LOL)

    I can not tell you how handy that strap on head light came. I used it on so many occassions. Just love it. I also always liked the battery tester that was built into the wrapper of the battery. Have not seen that anymore. Why is that?

    Good talking to you today brother Bruce.

    In regards to the poll at hand, most memorable would be the energizer bunny. It was a good ad campaign that has lasted a long time. Duracell has only the coppertop and well... that isn't that interesting.

    as I mentioned in the other thread, many people thought it was the duracell bunny - that must be a real kick in the shorts to have a great ad but people think it was your competitior.

    The Wabbit has not been around for a while eh Bruce?

    Thinking the new campain focus on the bunny inside the battery is good

    The old Duracell with the "Bond" theme and different "Toys" powered by the battery were great but that damn wabbit is an Icon

    THE BUNNY IS STILL AROUND, BUT DURING THE LATE 80S, MARY LOU RETTON AND "JACKO" MADE THE COMMERCIALS MORE ENTERTAINING.......

    I have been sitting here thinking about this and I can not think of any Energizer ads out right now. The Duracell ads stand out in my mind. The "Trusted Everywhere" campaign where they talk about being used during movie production, hospital environment, and space.

    I too am curious about the batteries with the built in testers, are those still being made?

    Ok. I just went to Energizer's website and looked at the current ads they are running and out of all of them I can say that I have seen two of them on television. The "Going" and "Band Camp Love" ads. The others do not seem familiar to me.

    I don't know if some ads are only run in certain markets or not. That could explain why I have not seen some of them.

    I always think of you, Brother Bruce, everytime I hear that the Energizer bunny keeps going and going and going. It reminds me (and assures me) that you are getting ever closer to the 512 TR that you want!!!!
    The oldest pool company in the nation, Wagner Pools (established 1919), uses Energizer batteries from Wellington Battery Co.
    See ya Saturday Bruce & Andrea!!!!

    Bruce,
    I think the current Duracell ads are trumping Energizer..but only recently. For the past 7 years or so, Energizer has been kickin' butt with the Bunny. :)

    Previous to that, the Duracell toy ads reigned supreme, but started getting stale.

    Duracell's "copper top" and those three tones they end the ads with will never go away...that is their trademark.

    Energizer ad will always associate w/ the bunny & that phrase. In my household, the word "Energizer" stands for a battery, just like "Coke" stands for cola drinks.

    Duracell commerical appeals more at first, but it's not catchy enough yet.

    Which brand do you sell, Bruce? (just kidding)
