Zingy returns in a 'Boombastic' new EDF Energy ad

Popular orange toy mascot is back on TV screens - could 2013 be the year for a Zingy toy?

Zingy - the star of EDF Energy's advertising campaign - has kicked off 2013 with a new TV spot.

The character is seen doing, well, exactly the same thing as he did in EDF's original 'Feel Better' promo.

However now his moves have been synced to the beat of Shaggy's perennial dancefloor hit, Boombastic. See it below.

Despite the lack of anything that new, Zingy's fans have been delighted by the new video on YouTube:

Despite the character's popularity and massive demand for a Zingy toy there has been no official confirmation from either EDF Energy, or Wow Stuff, supplier of Zingy's 'cousin', My Keepon. 

However, late last year Wow Stuff CEO Richard North did hint that a Zingy toy could be on the way in 2013.
