Toshiba helps dog/monkey friendships soar


A dog and a monkey are BFFs in this Wunderman spot touting Toshiba laptops. They mate and produce a terrifying dog-monkey hybrid that tears apart the neighborhood kids in a howling fit of interspecies rage! Not really. There's no cross-species breeding or carnage at all, even though I kept wishing for some. At one point, the primate outfits the pooch in a banana-crown, takes pics and and posts them online. You just know some jerky cat will find those shots and make the mutt a laughingstock. The buddies get separated when the dog's family moves away, but they keep in touch via video chats. Hmm, that sounds like a lot of human friendships these days—right down to the embarrassing Internet images. Here's an ad showing how pets would really use PCs if they could. They take after their masters.
