Yep, that's strange all right. What is it with Cadbury's lately? Drumming gorillas? Freaky dancing eyebrow kids? Bring back bloody Julius Sumner Miller, I say (or more like skeletal Julius Sumner Miller). Or those cute chocolate people who lived in the happy chocolate land. Chocolate!! I want to see chocolate in a Cadbury's ad! Not just a family sized block shoved on screen at the end!

Harumph.

i hate that ad, it scares me silly.

FL - Yep happy people eating dogs and things in Chocolate land.

Christine - It is freaky but then turns very funny when the girl starts playing the balloon!

That drumming gorilla ad is apparently hugely popular. Am I the only person who thinks it's stupid? It's not only because I don't like Phil Collins or John Farnham (the gorilla switched to playing You're the Voice recently).

Yes, I want to see chocolate people eating chocolate dogs.

It's strangely addictive, I get a giggle each time it comes on the idiot box.

Yeah, get Julius Sumner Miller back, see if we can pop his bones into a milk bottle using a lighted candle and a 6-pack of VB....

FL - The gorilla was better as Phil Collins. The John Farnham version sucked. I think the Gruen Transfer covered that off a while ago didn't they?

Jayne - "Why is it Soo?"

I am saying the "Glass and a Half of full cream dairy milk in every block" in my head with his accent now!


Now I see on the way to work they have the eye brows on the billboard on the Tulla Freeway.

Thats funny! the squeaky balloon is the freakiest part, its not even an ad for chocolate, its an ad for killing mutant children.

Frisky Librarian said...

Yeah, I think Gruen did cover it a while back. There was also something on The Age site about how the Farnsy version was not as well liked. I hate both. I hate the whole concept. I hate the fake gorilla. Get a real gorilla playing drums and then I might take a shine to it.

Christine - I am still trying to figure how they actually did it.

FL - Yes I want a real poo throwing monkey, not some semi pro drummer in a furry suit.
