Your pet has a shot at 15 minutes of fame this Easter.
The Cadbury bunny has been the company’s mascot for years, but because “everybody wants to be the Cadbury Bunny”—as the iconic commercial declares—recently they’ve opened the casting call to more than just regular old rabbits. Last year, Cadbury hosted a tryout for the position and invited any species of animal to don a pair of fuzzy ears and see if they had what it took to be the next face of its festive chocolate Easter egg candies. A bulldog named Henri took top honors in 2019, but now the company is once looking for a fresh adorable face for 2020.
Cadbury is encouraging all pet owners to enter to become the official Cadbury Bunny, and they’ve made the process simple. Visit the Cadbury website and submit a cute photo of your pet wearing bunny ears.
No bunny eats laying around?
No problem! Cadbury has a way to add them to your photo digitally before you hit submit.
The winner chosen will not only become the next Cadbury bunny and appear in a commercial this coming Easter, but will also receive $5,000.
Entries are being accepted until Feb. 24. Semi-finalists will then be selected and asked to submit an audition video. After that, it’s up to the public to crown the winner by voting online.
There are some pretty adorable entries already, including a pig named Pepper from San Diego and a 7-month-old donkey from Arizona, but there is still plenty of opportunity for new entires. Check out the entries or create your own now on the Cadbury website. Then check out this pizza parlor that will top your favorite saucy pie with Cadbury Eggs.
