Hold up hold up, hold up! PETA has made an ad-guerilla-stunt idea and... It contains no nude women... no references to the holocaust, no comparisions between serial killers and chicken slaughter... Is this really PETA? The idea is simple, to get ad agency people to stop using chimps (ie: apes) in their TV-commercials, they made auto-correct remind them about how these trained animals grow up in a short paragraph that appeared every time the words monkey, ape or chimp was typed into Word. Get them at script-level! Stop those ads from ever being written! This is clever. This is good.
This is hella annoying (for the Word user) in the end, so yes, it's still very PETA. A round of applause people. *golfclap*
