…and nothing less!
Because you can never expect anything less when it comes to nostalgia! And because we love nostalgia, we love nostalgic devices. But, we need something to keep those devices running longer and better.
I have a commercial for that!
(Don’t I always?)
Today, we’re dipping our nostalgic toes into 1982 (the year of this author’s birth), and pulling out a commercial advertising the importance of our electronic devices’ power source – the batteries!
Can your battery out snap, out add, out walk, out play, out tape, outshine, or outlast the competition?
More importantly, can your battery keep the music going all night long?
If it is today’s brand…then yes! Yes it can!
People have been saying to “Energize me!” since 1896, manufacturing batteries under their Energizer, Ray-O-Vac, Varta, and Eveready brands. Based in Town and Country, Missouri, Energizer’s foundation was in the Eveready Battery Company, which in 1980 changed the name of its Eveready Alkaline Power Cell to Energizer. The company itself has gone through some ownership changes over the years, most recently to Ralston Purina in 1986 (from Union Carbide), before being spun off by Ralston in 2000.
Energizer has also owned several popular personal care brands throughout the years – Schick, Playtex, Edge/Skintimate, Stayfree, Carefree, and o.b. in the United States, which all are under a separate holding company for personal care products.
Energizer is still going strong, as it was in the 1980s when people (including Santa!) said to “Energize me!”
Heck, Energizer even outlasted Suzie!
And to think, this wasn’t even their most memorable advertising campaign in the 1980s!
That was coming soon enough, and is a different story for a different day.
Have a great Throwback Thursday!
