Heading north

I'm forsaking the glow of the plasma screens of the chimp media centre today to scout the streets of Edinburgh. Firstly, to sample that Scottish delicacy - the deep fried Mars bar and secondly, to foment rebellion in the hope that independence from England is declared. It'll make the monkey invasion a lot easier.
With no time to prepare anything profound, I'm simply regurgitating this cute Carlsberg ad made by DDB Denmark in 1999. It has a few ingredients that give it an interesting flavour: light conflict, embarrassing parents, beer, and a hint of naughtiness. Watch out for the furtive bollock fumble. Thank heavens for the Danes.

And I thought deep fried Mars bars (and other unmentionable deep frieds) were strictly an American white trash Southern thing.

I learn much from the Chimp Messiah.

My god - you get them over there too?!

Come to think of it, I think the southern version might be Snickers bars. Either way, an intestinal explosion waiting to happen.
