..the best television advert in history!




I don't know how widely this aired; I know it was on television over here, but I don't know whether it made it across the village pond. Anyway, enjoy.

I think the gorilla makeup is the best I've ever seen - so expressive.

I'm actually a flautist (lapsed)
The follow-up to this ad involves various airport vehicles (baggage loaders, fire engines, etc) racing down a runway to the strains of Queen's `Don't Stop Me Now.' It's entirely unfunny.

I'm really annoyed that the player loaded with a still of the gorilla behind the drumkit; I wanted to surprise everybody.

Ahhh, then you should have used LJ's feature that lets you show only a placeholder for the clip until it is clicked on.

Ta for that, I'd never heard of it. And the placeholder icon is anything you nominate, yes?

Actually, on re-reading that FAQ page, it's not entirely clear if the 'placeholder in place of the clip' setting affects a clip that embed for anyone reading the post, or if it affects your own viewing preferences for any clip that other people embed in their posts.

I suspect the only way to be sure is to test it. Hmmmph.

I think it needs a test-run. I'll try and embed something over the weekend and see what happens.
