Spoof That is So Right

So now I’ve written three or four posts on that incredible Cadbury Gorilla commercial. But now Adfreak is reporting that Wonderbra has created an awesome spoof of the now famous Gorilla Drummer. Right down to the opening nose twitching. And then they added…boobs. Well you can see for yourself here. Or now check it out below:

To me, this is great work for Wonderbra. They clearly have ear close to the ground, and have caught all the buzz on the Cadbury’s spot. They found a good (and not annoying or destructive) way to include their key brand concept. Great, and so very watchable. Enjoy (and don’t kill me Marisa!)


Behind the Scenes with Cadbury Gorilla

We have all seen some incredible animatronics in our time. But the most popular lately has no doubt been that gorilla from Cadbury’s. Their spot for Dairy Milk has been an internet phenomenon, helped relaunch Phil Collins to a new generation, and has even (gasp) boosted sales! It seems good creative and a well placed viral ad still works afterall.

Daily Mail, an online paper from the Brits, has written a comprehensive guide on everything Cadbury Gorilla.

The article reports all kinds of fun facts about the gorilla, from the actor behind the mask to the tech that makes it possible. Check out the full article here for more. Thanks to Adfreks for the tip-off.

Cadbury Gorilla Spotting

23 09 2007

The Cadbury Gorilla commercial has been one of my all-time favorites since it premiered. I love that damn gorilla!  Check my post of it here.

But today I was watching the NFL preview show on ESPN and this ad comes on. What the heck? That’s my Cadbury gorilla dammit! Get your mitts off him, AXA Equitable.

I wanted to let you be the judge: is that the same gorilla or what? Check out another AXA Equitable ad from YouTube. If it isn’t, is there some crazy advertising gorilla trend starting up here late in ’07? God I hope so. I love gorillas.

Plenty of posts this week, last one was a crazy one for me.
