Cadbury’s Gorilla Unmasked

For one, glorious moment we got it into our heads that the man in the Gorilla suit in Fallon’s new Cadbury’s commercial was none other than Phil Collins himself. It all fitted. The gorilla had uncanny drumming skills. Phil has his acting chops having once been in an episode of Miami Vice and that film about one of the great train robbers. The agency were being cagey. They couldn’t give us stills for print, they said, because they’d had to sign a very strict agreement with the performer and “he had us over a barrel being the ONLY PERSON who could take this role” (our over-excited capitals).
But no. It turns out that the man in the gorilla suit is none other than… Garon Michael (above).
