Blog: Gorilla marketing

(Why a gorilla? Why use a song by Phil Collins? It's baffling, yet works brilliantly).
Cadbury has had its problems here in the UK over the last 12 months, with the salmonella scandal rocking the reputation of the company and its products.
But this ad cannot fail to put a smile on your face and Cadbury must hope it will breathe new life into one of the country’s best-loved brands.
