The iconic Cadbury Easter Bunny is going to look a lot different this season as the confectionery giant replaces their famed TV commercial mascot.
The “clucking bunny,” star of the Cadbury Eggs advertisements for 35 years, is being retired, with a new face taking its place starting next month.
Hailing from North Carolina, 18-month-old Henri the bulldog won Cadbury’s first “Bunny Tryouts” competition on Saturday, beating out 4,000 other hopefuls to hawk the cream-filled chocolate eggs.
Besides the newfound notoriety, Henri’s family will receive $5,000 and the ASPCA will get $10,000 from the company.
What are your thoughts on replacing the bunny in the commercials? Do you think this was the right decision?
