Storyline

"The Reel Monkey" is a short film set in the wilds of Africa. A frustrated documentary filmmaker is hot and bothered while waiting for two, bored chimpanzees to do something so he can finally get something on film. Frustrated by the chimp's lackluster behavior, he tries to relax with a Coca-Cola and notices the chimps perk up when he cracks a bottle open. Using the Coca-Cola as bait, he finally gets the chimps to perform for the camera, but he loses control of the situation when the chimps steal the bottle from him. He tries, unsuccessfully, to get his refreshing beverage back. We realize the animals have the upper hand when we see one of the chimps behind his camera, filming his foolish behavior. Written by Rosemary Lambert

Hilarious!

These chimps are so cute and so smart!

Take THIS, Pepsi challenge! Even a monkey knows the best soda. When is Banana Coke coming out? I think these two will go ape over it!!!

I've always loved the CCRFA films and each new one seems better than the last. Advertising is an art form. There's lots of bad art out there, and then there's this - what a refreshing short!!!

The title says it all. You've probably figured out what it's about and I don't want to give anymore away. So if you haven't seen it, go find it online. It's only a few minutes long and pretty funny - especially if you like chimps.

Looking forward to seeing this on the big screen. With my popcorn and my Coke (couldn't resist)
