Costa and the Chimps

Who gave the green light to the first TV ad campaign by Costa Coffee?

I can fondly remember the PG Tips ads of the 70s, featuring Chimpanzees, but I thought advertisers had realised long ago that using primates in commercials was not cool?

Clearly nobody told the people at Costa as they have dozens of them attempting to make coffee in this ‘hilarious’ ad. Is it just politically correct to think that using captive animals in TV ads is just a bit strange these days?
