Admittedly the subject of today’s installment has been highlighted previously in a Throwback Thursday post, but not ALL 4 of the Trunk Monkey ads! The person who posted this on YouTube erroneously labeled it a “trilogy” when you can clearly see that four separate skits take place. I think these were aired during the Super Bowl back in 06-07 if memory serves correctly.
Given the proliferation of dash cams and rear camera’s in cars today, I’m really surprised this hasn’t been offered to the consumer (monkey-wolverine-honey badger). I make no judgement about the ads or endorse the actions of the actors/simians in these ads, except when the monkey is shown in the back seat of the police cruiser…that was a raw deal.
These are funny if you’re someone with a warped sense of humor, maybe not so much if you’re an animal rights activist.
