Sometimes all it takes to make me smile is a cute nonsensical character, a well-chosen eighties pop song and…a cat, obviously. EDF’s new advert has all of these things! The ad was made by AMV BBDO, and the squidgy little mascot in it is called ‘Zingy’. More adverts featuring him are coming soon, so watch this space!
Of course, Zingy is not for sale – he’s a fictional animated mascot! But there is a dancing interactive robot on the market which looks and acts quite like him. The name of the toy is My Keepon, and the sales profits help fund research into autism. If you’re interested in having your own little Zingy to dance to whatever music you like, your best bet is probably a Keepon.
