When you see a Pink Bunny, do you think of Duracell or Energizer?

It would depend on where you live.
In North America it would be Energizer, but most everywhere else it would be Duracell.
Duracell was first with the pink bunny, but somehow Energizer was able to kidnap it and use it in the USA.
I was in a store today in the US that had both Energizer stock from the USA and Duracell stock from Europe for sale!
You can see each companies pink bunny mascot their package package.

How this came about is explained through these next few YouTube videos, each only 15 seconds long.
Take a minute or 2 and follow the history. I have arranged them in chronological order.

I think the Duracell bunny’s cuter.

The Energizer one just bugs me for some reason. I don’t like his attitude.

Pink bunny doesn’t bring any brand to my mind.

I think of an entirely different pink bunny and unfortunately I don’t have a picture because when I saw it I was too busy yelling for my wife to come look. That said, when my family moved to our new house we didn’t know the neighbor’s kids had a rabbit (or two?) So there I was enjoying our new view when a little pink bunny hops out from under the deck…naturally I rubbed my eyes and swore off drinking – for the rest of the morning. The wife came over and confirmed that there was in fact a pink bunny in the back yard. He or she then headed for the fence and disappeared into the bushes which hid a loose board. The rabbit made several more escapes/appearances sometimes it was pink sometimes its natural white and once (maybe twice) a bright blue. One Christmas the blue rabbit showed up in the front yard to make a meal of the extension cord fueling my snowman and reindeer. Fortunately for the bunny the visit was during the day and the lights were not on at the time.

My wife LOVES the Energizer Bunny, to the point maybe I should be jealous?
You are right, he has the attitude Wink

The “Wisdom of the Crowd” pointed out a number of other pink bunnies.

When I start seeing pink bunnies I know it’s time to put the Jack Daniels bottle away.
