Would you like to Buy a Monkey?


As an adult I see this ad and think, “This poor monkey eating lollipops and being hauled around on a leash isn’t cool! It’s horrible!” That’s the adult Retroist.

Still I remember being the kid who, if he saw this ad, would have started saving every penny he could get his hands on to get a pet monkey. I mean seriously, is their a kid in the world who wouldn’t want a monkey as a best friend? (I was a lonely child) Or at least a monkey butler?

David Letterman knows what I am talking about.

Yes I would Dave. Yes I would.
