Zoo wants company to stop using chimps in TV ads

General February 4, 2012

This video grab provided by CareerBuilders.com, shows the executive chimpanzee advertisement that will air during Super Bowl XLVI Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012. Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo says there's nothing funny about a commercial featuring suit-and-tie wearing chimpanzees scheduled to air Sunday during the Super Bowl. Dr. Steven Ross of the zoo says CareerBuilder.com's commercial that shows the chimps outsmarting a human co-worker actually poses a risk to chimpanzees because people lose sight of the fact they're an endangered species and less likely to try to save them. (AP Photo/CareerBuilders.com) A Chicago zoo is mounting a campaign to stop a company from airing a Super Bowl Sunday commercial featuring mischievous suit-and-tie wearing chimpanzees playing tricks on their human co-worker, saying all that monkey business proves deadly for the endangered species.
