Super Bowl Ad Tracker: CareerBuilder has chimps! Driving a car!

The chimps are back in action, appearing once again in the Super Bowl ads for CareerBuilder. The job-search website has made stars of suit-wearing chimpanzees for its Super Bowl ads. And this year, they’re behind the wheel of a car!

Thanks to the recession, job hunting hasn’t been a laughing matter of late. So you have to give props to a website charged with helping people find a job for having a sense of humor.

Plus, chimps pretending to be people -- it’s always a win! If these animals didn’t have a reputation for brutally attacking their owners when kept as house pets, I would have one. And he would, of course, be wearing a suit.

What did you think? Does CareerBuilder’s ad this year hold up against previous years’ ads, and how does it stand in the pantheon of Chimps As People?

Here, from YouTube, is a compilation of previous year’s ads. If you too have the type of sophomoric humor that finds chimpanzees in the workplace as the source of a rollicking laugh, watch this -- and LOL.
