Behind the scenes Zingy footage emerges

EDF have just released some exclusive footage showing Zingy having a makeover for his new advert. The little chap seems to pretty relaxed, having now got quite a few acting gigs under his belt.

Awesome new EDF advert launched

In the latest advert for EDF’s Blue+ Price promise, Zingy can be seen getting his groove on to the classic Cars track ‘Just What I Needed’ from 1978.

He can be seen doing the ironing, checking on the washing machine and having a ride on a Scalextric car. Check it out below!

New EDF advert renews Zingy toy interest

Directed by Therapy Films and featuring the song, Together We Are Beautiful by Fern Kinney, EDF’s brand new advert features an adorable basset hound called Morgan.

The advert is designed to promote the company’s Blue +Price Promise tariff but we’re far more interested to see Zingy’s adventures on his way home with Morgan.

Whilst EDF and Wow Stuff (makers of the My Keepon toy) remain tight lipped on an official Zingy toy, we’re convinced it can only be a matter of time.

Boombastic EDF advert featuring Zingy

Fans were ecstatic when EDF’s Zingy made a welcome return to their TV screens in a new advert in January 2013.

Set to the popular dance theme Boombastic, Zingy can be seen gyrating on a Scalextric set, a vacuum cleaner, a computer keyboard, a kitchen liquidiser, a hair dryer and a leaf blower!

New MyKeepon teaser adverts announced

MyKeepon, the charming little yellow blob that inspired EDF’s Zingy will be appearing in a series of 10-second teaser adverts in the run-up to Christmas.

Reminiscent of the Zingy campaign, these short, sharp MyKeepon promos feature the little cutey bopping away to Donovan’s classic hit Mellow Yellow.

Zingy 3D Model Launched

TurboSquid have launched a 3D modelling template for Zingy fans. Designed for use in games, animations or just for fun, the 3DS Max download is priced at $39.99.

Zingy Helps Song Back Into The Charts

The Official Charts Company has confirmed that the hit song, Together in Electric Dreams, which featured in Zingy’s first advert earlier this year has sold around 30,000 downloads since the advert was first broadcast.

The 80s classic by Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder typically gets around 100 downloads/week, but the use of the track on EDF’s advert campaign has increased this to a staggering 7000 downloads/week.

The song even made an appearance in the UK Singles Chart when it peaked at Number 46 before being knocked out again. Impressive stuff Zingy!
