Chimpanzee body builder found in France

Chimpanzee body builder

Promotional idea

I bought the Chimpanzee about 15 years ago to use at shopping centres and county shows as a means to get the children to pull there parents to our stand in order for us to sell our products.

Before the 'chimp' when we operated with a larger number of staff we used to have a rhino suit that someone would wear and it acted like a magnet at trade stands, we noticed as soon as the rhino made an appearance our trade stand was surrounded with people.

The chimp was purchased for £300 at the time but because the partnership dissolved after a few months the chimp was assigned to a box and there he remained until last month, when out of the blue it 'hit' me why not use him to advertise my product.

As a 'one man ' band i have no budget for additional advertising but I think it just goes to show with a bit of imagination and a camera any one can run with an idea.

I'm a firm believer that in life you need to take as many avenues as possible to reach your audience, some work, some don't but the more you do the more positive results you obtain.

I used to say to my team ' how strange life is that the 'lucky ones' are the ones who work the hardest' the guys who wrote more business were the ones with the busiest diaries.

La Forge and La Veille Maison are a pair of holiday cottages situated in the morbihan region of Brittany France in the lovely hamlet of Kerbourbon.
