Commercial Break: Now you see the monkey, now you don't...

13 August 2010

Here’s an Amercian ad for a bunch of new Dodge cars, deadpan-narrated by the bloke who plays Dexter and livened up no end by the appearance near the end of a monkey dressed as Evel Knievel. And why not?

But it seems that animal rights protestors PETA took a break from making posters with sexy women on them in order to kick up a bit of a stink about the ad. So Dodge coolly remade it. Dodge 1 PETA 0. Monkeys win. As always.
