I would advise not to read any further if you do not wish for me to ruin the cadburys advert, with the gorilla in it, for you.
Well it ruined it for me anyway

I don't know if this has already been posted, or if it is common knowledge, so I apologize if everyone already knows.

Notice how when the gorilla is playing, you can see the high hat (I think it's the high hat...) is being played by it, but you can't actually hear it.

Now I've typed it out it seems extremely lame... But it ruined it for me and I loved that damn advert

I pointed that out the first time I saw it.

Then I proceeded to piss the **** out off everyone at my college by ranting about it.

The edit of the song sucks ass too.

It's Phil Collins' fault though, seriously.


Indeed

As usual, the only tangible solution to the problem is to kill Phil Collins.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Sorry what? If you actually knew what you were talking about, you'd know he was actually a dedicated drummer, and only became a singer because Peter Gabriel left Genesis.

Phil Collins is a mean man though. First he had to ask Cadbury to let him have their logo in his advert and then he had to steal a chimp from the wild. This is why I don't like him, he's so demanding and wants everything. Unbelievable ey?

Also, he isn't playing the ghost notes on the snare near the end of the ad.

I'm sorry, I think if anything this is a case of either you misreading what I posted, or you trying to make it seem as if I said something different so that you could squeeze in some little comment to make yourself look clever. I was joking, and said "What a drummer and a singer?" I know he is a dedicated drummer, I didn't question that. Sheez mate take a pill.

i see what you mean but even the drum fill is way out(at the beginning) its an advert get over it

Haha, I thought when I clicked on the thread it was gonna say

"IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A REAL GORILLA!!!"

I don't get it.

The high hat is moving while the gorilla plays, even though in the song, no high hat is being played.

It's really simple, and not very disappointing. Who cares about the commercials anyways? I just want some candy.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.
#27
but technically looking at the high hat i dont think that would be enough to make much of a sound (IfYaGetMeh?)

Yeah, no sound on the hi hat, and the little snare roll near the end.

But still.

I love it.

Jesus, I noticed that, although it didnt really ruin it for me, its still a cracking ad.

if they were going to go through the trouble of faking a gorilla playing drums, they could've at least bothered to play it correctly.

Quote by Thornography
I don't get it.



The big black hairy thing is hitting on something, but it isn't making any noise which is unusual because when people hit on things they usually give off sounds.


When I say this the big black thing isn't a penis, and the thing isn't a beautiful woman smothered in lotion.

There is nothing good about the advert.

Its just a Gorilla playing drums. What does that have to do with anything?

The fact that we are talking about it, shows that it is effective. If adverts didn't work they wouldn't waste the money. Adverts are no use to me, but to a business it is. Nice avatar btw, brings back memories.
