Body Slammed By A Lowland Gorilla!

body slammed

– – In another of their memorable and comic commercials in which one event leads to another, DirecTV tells us the sad tale of someone who pays too much for cable, causing him to feel down.  When you feel down, you stay in bed…and when you stay in bed, they give your job (in this case, zoo keeper) to someone new.  When your job is given to someone new, that someone has a lot to learn…and when someone has a lot to learn, mistakes are made…like failing to secure a cage, which results in a gorilla escaping behind the new keeper’s back.  When mistakes are made, you get body slammed  by a lowland gorilla when you leave your bed to get the paper….a gorilla named “Jimbo!”

We are admonished not to be body slammed by a lowland gorilla, but rather get rid of cable, and upgrade to DirecTV.  Depression is a terrible thing, and so is being mowed down by a rampaging gorilla.  – -I’ll take their word for it!  One can, I am told, profit from the mistakes of others…

    I prefer the old Samsonite commercial, where the gorilla (a real one!) was used to symbolize all the butter-fingered bellboys and airport baggage handlers in the world.

      OK! So, it was American Tourister. But, that company _and_ Samsonite are now owned by the same conglomerate. So, the point’s a moot one.

        They both made great, almost indestructible bags. I used a Samsonite attache case for several decades. It got scuffed up, but remained fully functional…awesome quality!
