I like that.

Tobacco had Joe the Camel, petroleum Tony the Tiger, why not The Atom, illustrated several hundred feet high on cooling towers to help popularize nuclear power.

The Esso Tiger first appeared as a mascot around the turn of the 20th century in Norway. European divisions of Esso continued to use the Tiger to promote their gasoline products until the advent of war. World War II brought rationing of gasoline to the world market, and advertising for petrol was stopped.

After the World War II rationing period, the Esso Tiger made its US debut. The Tiger was used to make Esso stand out against the other competing petrol companies. At this time a young copywriter named Emery Smith came up with the slogan “Put a tiger in your tank,” which would begin a very successful advertising campaign.

TONY THE TIGER
Tony the Tiger is the advertising cartoon mascot for Kellogg's Frosted Flakes (also known as Frosties) breakfast cereal, appearing on its packaging and advertising. More recently, Tony has also become the mascot for Tony's Cinnamon Krunchers and Tiger Power. Since his debut in 1951, the character has spanned several generations and become a breakfast cereal icon. Image

Big difference...

How about CGI simulations of the actual event of atoms undergoing fission, a cooling tower with running animations of what's going on inside the reactor would have a powerful visual impact. Something more complex than the traditional little ball(representing a neutron) hitting another bigger ball made up of protons and neutrons that then splits apart and emits more neutrons.

Even stills of the process might be effective.
