Zingy the EDF Ad Dude

Zingy is the new character for EDF’s Feel Better Energy Ad.  He is also ridiculously cute for something that has more than a passing resemblance to poop.

I couldn’t resist creating him when I saw I had some leftover yarn in the exact same colour.  He only took a couple of hours and has a small sachet of lentils in his base which gives him a nice weight.  It also means that he stays on top of my mini cooper when it’s driving over the floor!  I wish I had video on my camera!

I had a lot of fun with the photoshoot.  :)

Go on, pop on Human League’s Together in Electric Dreams and scroll down…



For a guy with no legs or arms he did a good job of the hoovering.  My cat was camera shy (read: non-existant).

Zingy didn’t quite get the hang of the webcam.  I’m not sure if it was because he resented that he had to stand on something to be seen or if seeing himself freaked him out.


Zingy was having a blast until I turned it up to the high setting.


He only got a short go on the blender, he was enjoying it far too much.


Watching penguins.  A little known fact is that penguins are Zingy’s favourite animal, an even littler known fact is why.


While I don’t have a Scalextric set, I do have a flashing, moving, shaking, rock and rolling mini cooper.  It’s all fun and games until Zingy falls off, then it’s hilarious.  Zingy disagrees.

And finally,


Zingy meets the Zingy prototype.  He’s not sure what to make of it.  I’m keeping them separate, the world may implode if they touch.

I hope I managed to put a smile on your face.  :)
