BIG PIRANHA - Mechanical Puppets.
Four- 10 inch long, life-size puppets.

This EVEREADY ENERGIZER spot called for four piranha to provide a dangerous enough threat to for a villain to scare our scientist into revealing Energizer secrets. They were made to work underwater in a big fish tank puppeteered by thin control rod that run out of the top of the piranha, with cables for tail kick, dorsal fin flap, and mouth open/close, plus a hose for bubbles.
