The emaphasis of their slogan 'A glass and a half of milk in every bar' has changed on the advert to 'a GLASS and a HALF FULL'. (see the beginning and end of the ad).

This is a reference to the optimist / pessimist outlook on life.

At first you feel sorry for the gorilla, thinking he is sad. Only when he starts drumming do you realise he was actually psyching himself up for pure joy on the drums. His glass is half full.

Fcuk knows why it's a gorilla though!

edit - its still a weird way to advertise chocolate though.

I had a geordie workmate mention the advert and go on about how she thought it was cruel to use a gorilla in the advert, until I explained it wasn't a real gorilla and was infact just a regular monkey wearing a gorilla suit. It took her a few minutes to realise what I'd said, during which she said (and I quote) "well its just as cruel to use monkeys like that".

Bless her.

It doesn't matter if there's NO link at all between the Gorilla and chocolate! The point ALL remember the Gorilla...and the drums...and that the advert is for chocolate! Those that made the advert will be sitting there, and quite rightly thinking "job done!"
