Be memorable!

Have you seen this little guy? He’s a regular on TV at the moment, and this cute card popped through my letterbox last week. This is a clever campaign by EDF Energy that has ‘personalised’ its brand, and made it stand out from the other energy suppliers.

He is shown dancing to catchy, energetic tunes such as Together in Electric Dreams by the Human League, on a variety of electronic appliances. If you missed the ad, you can see it here.

You can also schedule posts ready for approval […]
