Two Chimps Went To Watch The New Planet Of The Apes

chimps-watch-movie.jpg

A pair of two-year old chimpanzees went to watch Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes last weekend at a movie theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Heck yeah, Myrtle Beach! I think I lost my virginity there.

Vali and Sugrive, who live at the Myrtle Beach Safari, bought their own tickets for the show and paid for their own snacks, popcorn and juice.


During the film, the two chimps were seen responding just like the humans surrounding them, with Sugriva turning away during a dramatic scene and Vali clenching his companion's hand.

The chimps watched the film with some 1,000 other cinema-goers at the IMAX screen in the cinema complex - although not everybody was too comfortable having them present.

Dr Antle said: 'A couple of people said very clearly "are you sure they should watch this movie, won't they learn to take over the world?"

'There were several people actually concerned about that.'

When reached for comment, the people who were concerned with the chimps learning to take over the world by watching this movie could not be reached. Presumably because they're too stupid to live and finally died after cheating death all these years.

Keep going for a video news report, all of which was presumably orchestrated by 20th Century Fox for the free publicity.

Thanks to Lindby and Conner, who agree there's no shame in wearing a diaper to the movies so you don't have to take bathroom breaks.

    Where do you cunts come from?

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    The people behind this publicity stunt has clearly misunderstood the moral message behind this film franchise. To force some poor creatures perform cheap party tricks for our own selfish amusement is not great advertisement.
    Showing of animal cruelty and exploitation is possibly the whole point. But I doubt it. Anyway, this whole crazy circus it's in poor taste.

  • those were young chimps, they had a good time, the older ones get difficult.

  • Fredrik Pettersen

    You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

  • lol

  • Haha, the monkeys go more often to a theater than GW
