Something In The Air?

We live in a crazy world where advertising execs seem to think that watching a gorilla play drums instantly makes us think of chocolate. The only brown stuff I associate with gorillas is the stuff they've pulled out of their arses and fling at you at the zoo. (This is a depressingly regular event at Dudley Zoo.) I also associate that same brown stuff with the soundtrack to this advert, a thought shared by lots of other people, as YouTube is full of redubbed versions of this advert, so I thought I'd share the best ones with you all.

First up is Bonnie Tyler's ridiculous power ballad:

Next is a simple soapy idea:

Here is the great ape rocking out to Pantera's excellent Walk:

The also-excellent Nine Inch Nails get an inevitable re-dub, this works because the drummer actually IS an animal:

And I've left the best until last:

Which kinda takes us back to Dudley zoo. One thing that's always bothered me is the fact that Cadbury's make a big deal of the fact that there's a glass and a half of milk in every bar, but exactly how much is a 'glass'? What recognised system of weights and measures are they using to quantify the amount of milk used? Maybe they should change it to 'a petri dish and a half of salmonella in at least 10% of our bars'.
