If you haven’t seen any of the PG Tips commercials yet here some of them. The first PG Tips commercial was launched in 1956, when the main characters were played by chimpanzees dressed up as humans and voiced by celebrities. Later they were exchanged for a knitted monkey – the official mascot of PG Tips since 2001 and it’s sidekick Al played by Johnny Vegas.
Personally I don’t find the monkey funny or cute and I’m not a big fan of this humour either, but both PG Tips and those commercials are very popular in Britain.
