Drumming Gorillas

Post by Caerlyr Osprey » Fri Sep 14, 2007 10:49 pm

Anyone else wonder what the gorilla drumming along to Phil Collins's 'in the air tonight' has to do with
selling chocolate - well cadburys dairy milk?

It's viral, like.

Good gorilla suit, though.

We wondered what the connection was too - but it is a good advert (even if the drum riff comes in at the wrong time....)

Whoever is in the gorilla suit can actually play drums too, according to my drummer mate.

I absoloutley love the advert.

I think that the theme is that you should do anything that you want and just enjoy life.

Did anyone else go through the same emotions of "I think this is one weird advert, but don't cut off just before the really great drum bit....cool, the gorilla loves the really great drum bit too!" Made me smile, and most ads make me rush to the toilet.

Does this prove that if you leave a bunch of gorillas together for long enough, they'll eventually write a Phil Collins song?

Shouldn't take them all that long, actually.

There are so many ad's these day that make no sense and have nothing to do with the product, i think that is the idea cause it gets you thinking and you remember. look at the carling ad with the birds and then followed by the carling logo saying belong on it ?????

Or the classic for a lack of product link GUINESS
