Original Energizer Bunny Up For Auction
By James Grahame
Heritage Auction Galleries in Dallas is selling one of the six original Energizer Bunnies. They claim, "This is an original Energizer Bunny created by Academy Award-nominated special effects artist Eric Allard and his company All Effects. Having appeared in more than 100 television commercials since his debut in 1989, the Energizer Bunny is an advertising icon that just keeps going and going and going... so much so that AdAge.com named it #5 on its list of the Top 10 Advertising Icons of the 20th Century. Included is a letter of authenticity from Allard."
The reserve price is $15,000, and they expect the furry little animatronic icon to fetch as much as $30K. At that price, your credit card payments will just keep going and going...
