Adverts like that should be done more often it'll sell big!

Sexy?!
I love the advert- I think the point of it is to get people talking about it and trying to work out the connection- IMO it's definately worked as even people at school, my dad's work, are discussing it, so as well as the TV advert it's advertising Cadbury's by word of mouth. I wish they hadn't cut the advert though, it ruins the effect

Hevcat, Rose & Sammy, I'm with you. I don't think there's anything to actually get though, it's just a guy in a gorilla suit. It's a bit different to other ads so the papers whip up a huge fuss because they're lazy twats who think putting Danielle Lloyd on the front with her baps out constitutes producing a newspaper (but that's another rant, and yes Daily Star, I mean YOU. I'd tell you to burn in hell but I don't believe in God either).

Anyway, back to the advert. No, it's not that good, it's just that a hell of a lot of people are amazed by any old shite.

Exactly- it's different to other adverts and makes people talk about it. This is the whole point of the advert because every time someone mentions it to someone else, it is spreading it by Word of Mouth and advertising Cadburys every time someone talks about it.  The definition of advertising is "creating awareness of a product/service", and this advert does this even to people who don't see it on TV because everyone is talking about it.
It has lots of distinguishing features and is unique, so while I'm not "amazed" by it, I think it's a good advert.
(And yes, I am studying promotion in Business Studies at the moment lol)

You're right. It's fulfilled its purpose in getting people to talk about the product but what I don't understand is all these people going "it's amaaazzzing" or saying how brilliant it is. It's actually not. It just grabbed their attention purely because it's different to what people are used to. I've had people gush about it to me and that's what I don't understand.

I personally haven't heard anyone say "It's amazing" but I agree that it's only grabbed their attention because it's different. I don't think it's absolutely fantastic but, like you said, it serves it's purpose and IMO is a lot better than most of the crap adverts on TV at the moment. I wonder how everyone reacted when they had a board meeting and someone said "I've had a brilliant idea! We have a gorilla playing the drums!", and how did anyone come up with the idea in the first place as it doesn't really have any obvious link to Cadburys?

That advert is the obsession of my media class!! We always manage to persuade our teacher to let us watch it.
The sub didn't buy it though...

well I though it was a bit dumb to be honest! i got emailed a link and I jusrt coukd not figure it ut at first. Maybe it does get people talking about it...but isnt the pointt omake you want to buy the product? it also seems a bit old as drummers seem ot be used for loads of ads ( wonderbra)

i did however like the spoof of the ad were the gorila went mental!
