Phil'er Up - It's a long drive to badland.

Badland: 

What the heckamadoodle could these two seemingly unrelated commercials ever have in common? Well, see for yourself. Watch the first one for Cadbury Dairy Milk at their Glass and a Half Full Productions site. Then, watch the promo spot for ABC's Carpoolers here (Cadbury's Gorilla is available here in the commercial archive).

Yikes. Freaky-deaky Badland city.

*gorilla playing drums - this was added by dabitch for searching purposes.

Ha! Outclassed by a gorilla.

The teaser in the newspaper for the Cadbury's commercial was a close-up of the gorilla's face with the line "He's been waiting for this moment for all of his life." The background was Cadbury's purple, and the glass-and-a-half logo was in the corner, but it looked like it was leading up to a big conservation promotion, or even a conservation programme. I was pleasantly surprised to find out it wasn't.

God they do know how to pull out all the stops when doing a crazy idea in the UK, don't they? Like that.

As for the music twinnage, wow, I can feel it, must be in the air.. tonight.. *fails miserably at drumming at the right time*

Yes that was great

The "A glass and a half of joy" Gorilla ad just made my year. That is plain beautiful. Nobody does a better Phil than that gorilla. I had to watch it ten times. Still laughing.

Pretty sweet. I hope the follow-up features Jane Goodall on the cowbell.

Today we got so many people searching on "gorilla playing drums" (yes, that specific) that I figured I should add it to the post so people find it.

Genious.

One more -

Meh. The idea isn't 'a gorilla drumming' but rather 'everyone does that Phil Collins solo', IMHO.
