PG Tips monkey gets sozzled in spoof Christmas speech

LONDON - Monkey, the star of the PG Tips ads, dons royal garb in a comic take on the Queen's Christmas speech in a new online ad created by AKQA.

The 90-second spot acts as a teaser for an upcoming TV advert by Mother, which pays tribute to the famous Morecambe and Wise breakfast sketch.

Monkey bungles numerous attempts to make a speech about the year gone by and gets increasingly drunk on the champagne with which he is making the toast.

The end of the ad shows Monkey snoring, slumped on a chair and propping up a placard.

it urges viewers to tune into ITV1 on Christmas Day between 9:05am and 9:25pm, to catch the actual TV event he failed to describe.

Comedy duo Morecambe and Wise are famous for the breakfast sketch which shows the pair preparing breakfast in time to a bawdy instrumental, called The Stripper.
