WILMINGTON, NC (WFLA/WECT) – Meet this year’s Cadbury bunny!
Don’t let the ears fool you. Henri isn’t a bunny at all.
He’s an English bulldog.
This year, Cadbury did something different. The chocolate company held a contest to pick the star of its next clucking bunny commercial.
Henri’s owners are thrilled with his win and becoming part of advertising history.
“It’s been a part of our lives since the 80s, so our kids grew up with it, our kids’ kids are going to grow up with it and Henri will be a part of, which is an amazing dream come true,” said Kathie Santillo.
Cadbury is giving Henri’s family $5,000 and donating $10,000 more to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
That should help with Henri’s training to become a therapy dog after his 15 minutes of fame have expired.
