The television premiere of Cadbury’s gorilla advertisement was on Friday 31st August 2007. It was well-received by the public and receiving 500,000 page views on YouTube in the first week after the launch.
The concept was simple. A 90-second track shot across a music studio, with Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” playing in the background. A large gorilla sitting at a drum kit plays along with the song’s famous drum fill.
The concept marked the step away for Cadburys from pushing the product through traditional advertising means, by instead producing “entertainment pieces” which would appeal to a broader range of consumers and spread through viral marketing and word of mouth. This new campaign ended Cadbury’s previous ten-year sponsorship of Coronation Street.
