Anyone who's been watching the TV over here might have noticed that Monkey has made a return! For anyone not from the UK who probably won't know this, Monkey was originally used to advertise a TV service called ITVDigital - except the Monkeys proved to be much more popular than the TV thing so the company went bust. Indeed, Monkey developed a bit of a cult following, and we had 4 of them around at the place I was working in 2001/2 and they were going for a fortune on Ebay! I got a knitting kit from Mavis Crafts, and got my great-aunts to knit my Monkey (I couldn't knit then!).
Anyway, Monkey has made a reappearance on TV, advertising PGTips (not sure what I think about this, as I only drink fair trade tea!). You can see the (extended) advert with Monkey in here and buy monkeys here... Be warned. The advert does feature Monkey in the washing machine which some viewers may find upsetting.
