The Beginning Of The End Of Chimps In Ads
Is this the end of monkey ads? The nonprofit Ad Council—which makes all those famous public service ads you see everywhere—has agreed not to use any more "great apes" in its ads. No chimpanzees or orangutans! Not only that, but the CEOs of dozens of major advertisers and ad agencies sit on the Ad Council's board, and PETA is promising to urge all of them to stop with the ape ads, too. Kiss your precious CareerBuilder monkeys goodbye!
You can post your favorite ape ads in the comments and reminisce. [Via Adfreak; Pic via BW. And no I don't know the difference between a monkey and an ape, okay.]
