As I left the tube this morning I was confronted by a man in a gorilla suit who offered me a flyer:
The back of the flyer then gives details of 'the Great Gorilla Run 2009':
This is a fun run where participants cross '7km of urban terrain..... in a gorilla suit.' The flyer goes on to say 'join 100s of gorilla runners on the streets of London and help save an endangered species from extinction.'
The Great Gorilla Run leaflet promotes the event website at greatgorillas.org and this also has links to various other social areas such as Flickr, MySpace, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
The Great Gorilla Run YouTube channel has a promotional video:
However, my favourite promotional video has been created by one of the Great Gorilla Run participants. Under the strapline 'Rocky has a montage, so why can't I have one?' Fergus has created a clip montage showing him dressed as a gorilla while he runs past various London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden, Lords, Abbey Road - finishing up at Alexandra Palace:
I never thought taking a flyer from the street could reveal so much! Worthy cause and could be an entertaining day.
