Monkey magic

The BBC made a big thing recently about screening a film made by chimpanzees and how wonderful it was but, of course, it wasn't wonderful at all, it was rubbish, all over the place.

Showing them how it's done, here's those lovable, frightened P.G Tips chimps in an advert from 1965, filmed at Abbey Road of all places. They may not have directed it, but the performances are sublime, especially from the producer/tea boy and dear old Buddy Rich on the drums.
