Puppet monkey to deliver speech on Christmas!December 13th, 2008 - 5:39 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 13 (ANI): In a rather Royal stunt, the puppet monkey from the PG Tips tea adverts will dress up as the Queen and will give an alternative Christmas speech this year.
Donning a white frock with other regal accessories including pearls and blue sash, Monkey, the knitted woollen doll, will address the nation on the highlights of 2008, reports the Telegraph.
The puppet, a grey wig, red lipstick, and spectacles perched on its nose, will deliver the speech which will appear on the video sharing website YouTube from Dec 15.
However, the content of the festive address, which comes ahead of a new advertising campaign for the tea brand, has not yet been revealed.
The speech is a prelude to a pastiche of the Morecambe and Wise breakfast sketch starring the chimp and comedian Johnny Vegas.
Being the most famous scene of Morecambe and Wise, the breakfast sketch shows the duo making breakfast to the classic striptease theme tune The Stripper.
The new advert will screen on ITV1 on Christmas Day between 9.05pm and 9.25pm. (ANI)
