TrunkMonkey. Because sometimes, just getting your car back isn't enough. (Flash with embedded movies)

That was *really* funny. Thanks for the laughs :-) I wish the videos were available for download. I don't watch live TV anymore and use MyHTPC as a front-end for my massive TV and Movie collection and I like to show funny commercials and video clips before movies and TV shows

Yes, that *was* funny! I wish it was optimized for grayscale because I like to stream video to my web-enabled Etch-a-Sketch.

It's an ad. Or rather, part of an 'edgy' ad agency's portfolio. Or maybe an art project. Or a meta-ad. I think. More here, go to 'work.'

These people. Maybe they're advertising themselves?

These showed on local television here in Portland. The original is a classic that's been passed around the 'net for YEARS.

Looks like a real auto dealership to me...

I do however know some other monkeys who might be interested in this, if they have not dug it up already.

Isn't that a chimp?

Carter - I should've won, although I didn't identify the dealership itself. ;) Those commericals are famous in the dealership's market area, Portland, OR.

SpecialK wins too, yay!

The simians had Trunk Monkey about seven weeks ago.
