Gorilla Tires


Somebody explain to me how gorilla balloons became so popular for selling cars, when most people in their right minds wouldn't let gorillas near their cars. Of course, we're qualified to sell airplanes and helicopters if we so choose, but I suspect some sort of hypocrisy in the mix.

The one pictures I find amusing is of the inflatable gorilla holding up a "free childcare" sign. I can relate. I have had to babysit the Landlord's daughter ad infinitum. I am thinking of raising my rates.

Addendum from the comments section:

Must have been a special on the blue one with sunglasses and swimming trunks. The CHURCH? That's funny.

"My brothers and sisters, we need to find an affordable way to spread the Good Word to the masses."

"Brother Paul, I have a cousin who owns a car dealership. How about a giant blue gorilla?"

"But why a Gorilla?"

"He could hold a sign that says 'Free Childcare'"

"SWEET. Let's do it!"

"AMEN."

Inflatable gorillas to sell cars? It's obvious old chap - everyone knows that in Zaire all wild gorillas have their own vehicles with silverbacks preferring souped up SUVs. Lady gorillas opt for something smaller such as the Toyota Starlet or the British Mini.

I ALWAYS wondered why the dealerships thought a huge gorrilla balloon could sell a car. Gimme YOU, Brad, in Elvis attire, any time, and I'd probably buy two.
