The character, known as Bunny, will take control of Duracell’s Facebook page from tomorrow (3 April).

He will regularly interact and engage with the brand’s fans through Q&As, tips and competitions. It is the first time that owner Procter & Gamble has sought to present the bunny character’s personality beyond his endurance and longer lasting power.

In 2009 the bunny become CGI after previously being a battery powered toy.
