If you ask most people what their favorite Easter tradition many will offer up the Cadbury Egg & Bunny. Well this year the folks at Cadbury decided to take their contest to the internet for real and the winner is Henri the Bulldog.

Cadbury Eggs candy company’s first “Bunny Tryouts” competition had pet owners submit pictures of their fur babies straping on the bunny ears to gather votes. Their winner Henri will replace their famous clucking bunny as the star of the annual ad campaign for the cream-filled chocolate eggs.

And although by breed Henri is an English Bulldog he really resides in Wilmington, N.C., and lives with Kathie and Tim Santillo. Henri is 18 months and in addition to stardom, Henri and his family will receive $5,000.

Over 4,000 pets tried out for Cadbury’s competition. Because if you remember everybody wants to be the Cadbury Bunny.
