Magilla Gorilla, Esq.

(click ad for closer look)
A gorilla's DNA is a 97% match of a human. However, these two grim-faced ambulance chasers are probably more like a 99% match. And—as part of their initial free consultation—if you think your injuries aren't quite serious enough to win your lawsuit, ex-Marine Smith (L) will howl, pound on his chest, and throw you around their offices until sufficiently concussed. Try getting that kind of hands-on service from an ostrich, zebra, or giraffe lawyer. (seriously, WTF? there must be a loony consultant out there advising law firms to put animals in their ads. thanks to Stacy Stockard for the image.)

"When Davis is not fighting for his clients, he travels all over the world competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments" If he doesn't win the case, he'll personally make a visit to the defendents home or place of business and make sure they suffer the same pain and injury his clients have suffered through. Rest assured, we're aggressive

No, we admit it, we're not silverbacks, we're not that dominant, but we do give good chase.

Aren't gorillas (for the most part) gentle, easy going creatures? If you're going to make an animal analogy, at least use the right animal.

Yep, Ars Morendi, but this will be lost on most viewers. Hippos are actually probably the most dangerous animal out there, but they're still too cute to use in ad. Of course, maybe that's a theme someone should use if they're going to keep working the animal angle - we may look nice, but our results tell a different story...

Of course, bulldogs can be agressive too, particularly those in New Jersey who will not be leashed. http://www.rosemariearnold.com/CM/Articles/News_08-17-03.asp

Yay to ars morendi. As any fule kno, gorillas are only aggressive to their own kind. Giraffes and zebras, on the other hand... evil, grudge-bearing bastards.
