    The real message here is that Dodge is the best car for hiding chopped up body parts.

    That is seriously just nitpicking I mean come on get the d**do out your ass PETA, it's a monkey. It's not being subjected to cruel whips and chains and fire :'(
    There's worse things in the world than comedy like world hunger, cancer, AIDs..(monkey haha)
    Good advert, good editing.

    Eco-terrorists win again.

    ....I just realised though, Peta can still claim that "Animals were harmed or abused in the making of this commercial" even if the monkey was digitially removed.

    PETA is crazy....
    What's so bad about this commercial? I think we have given groups like PETA way to much sway over what we see and do...

    i just love "solutions" like these.
    someone being given an unreasonable or unusual demand, and complying only just enough to annoy the person making the demand.

    The thing that is dumb, is that they already used a monkey, that according to PETA must of been abused. So what difference is it if you pull the ad or not. The guy who abused the monkey has made his money already, so who are you helping by taking out the monkey from the ad?

    "This monkey has been abused, you have to pull the ad so all his abuse to make this ad was all for naught."

    PETA is insane. I don't see anything wrong with the commercial.
    I'm glad PETA complained. It made the commercial more amusing!

    Yes. This is fantastic! More companies should deal with ridiculous support group complaints this way.

    That's not to say that PETA is completely ridiculous. But I see no wrong done here.
