Phil Collins takes a walk on the brown side

Doing the rounds at the moment is this UK ad for Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.

Say what you will about his songwriting abilities but, in the ’70s, Phil Collins was one of the best drummers in rock (along with people like Bill Bruford who, not coincidentally, was a touring member of Genesis in 1976).

The question, though, is could a trained monkey do as good a job?

    When I think gorillas, I think CHOCOLATE — it’s an obvious association that I’m surprised hadn’t been exploited previously.

    I don’t think I am going to be able to listen to that song ever again, I am so disturbed. It’s a shame because it’s one of the few Phil Collins (solo) songs I actually like.
