LATE ENTRIES: Sponsored by 2AM Films Ltd - Dr Pepper - Chimps

Dr Pepper continues its claim that 'not everything is as good as the original' with a spot parodying the 70s cop show, Chips. Erik Estrada, star of the original, was only too happy to hit the highway again and says the creative team, the chimps loved the feel of the wind through their fur. Chips has achieved cult status in the US. The ads, likewise, are proving popular with the broad 18-49-year-old target audience.
