CareerBuilder Chimps Attack Your Inbox

monk_e_mail.jpg

CareerBuilder just can't give up those chimps. They're in ads, They,re on the website. Now they're going to be in your email if CareerBuilder has its way. The job site has launched a five step, create-an-email microsite, called Monk-e-mail, on which visitors can pick a chimp, dress it up, give it something to say, preview it and send it to a friend. It's humorous enough nut just not as funny as that Wedding Crashers Trailer Crashers thing.

"There in the ads, There on the website"!? Is they're no proofreading on this site to catch all of the mistakes that show up on their?

No, there isn't. The readers are the proofreaders:-)

Kudos to CareerBuilder for having some backbone and keeping the chimps. I was part of two marketing departments (PUMA and Keds) that used chimps in ads and pulled spots after PETA complained. Then they used those brands to further their own cause.

BTW the CareerBuilder ads may not be the most original, but they're alright. So you may lose a segment of chimp-loving job hunters to Monster. Oh well.

Chimps used in ads are forced to smile and only act because they are terrified of their trainers and the punishment they recieve if they do not preform as commanded. Naturally chimps would not wear clothes or be in front of Television cameras. Let's keep them out of show business. Check out http://www.nomoremonkeybusiness.com for more information.

Does any one have any pictures of chimps dressed in clothes? Need for an ad campaign for my office.

It's very tragic how CareerBuilder exploits these animals for human entertainment. I feel really sorry for these chimpanzees as well as the ignorance of people who don't understand how wrong this exploitation truly is. Taken from nomoremonkeybusiness.com "Despite a public outcry and having been alerted to the cruelty inherent in forcing young chimpanzees to perform confusing and unnatural routines for its commercials, CareerBuilder created another set of ads that premiered during the 2006 Super Bowl"
Before anyone rolls their eyes and casually dismisses this, I urge you to research it sometime. You'll be very surprised to know how seriously cruel this is.
