Everyone could use a helpful Trunk Monkey

More monkey news today. This time, Strategic Public Relations points us to the Trunk Monkey—a versatile fellow who hides in the trunks of cars and comes to his drivers’ rescue just in the nick of time, in ads for the Suburban Auto Group in Oregon. In this spot, he plays midwife at a backseat birth. In other spots, all of which are on the Web site, he threatens violence with a shotgun, inflicts violence with a metal club and tries to bribe a cop with cash and doughnuts. It’s sort of unclear what the Trunkmonkey product is, exactly. According to the Web site, it “lives in the trunk of any vehicle and helps to automate weight transfer at the rear wheels during spirited driving maneuvers.”
