If you watch some TV in the US or even outside the US, you may have noticed some apes searching on a search engine named has released a blitz of TV commercials in Europe and the US to try to show users the unique flavor of Ask powered search and the creative tools Ask provides to it searchers. I have seen one of the commercials, it involves apes searching, representing how its time for a new way to search the Internet. The commercial shows Smart Answers, Binoculars and Ask's other features.

Yea, so you want to see it, don't you. Well, I think I have finally convinced to post the commercials at their blog. I have a feeling they will be live sometime today at The Ask Blog, so keep checking (I will update this blog when I know its live).

Forum discussion to break loose at Search Engine Watch Forums.

everyone likes apes :) I saw one commercial during American Idol (I wasn't watching it was my wife) and thought it was good. Funny thing my wife says out loud about the binoculars "that's cool." Next day in the office I overheard a salesman talking about the exact same thing. Go Ask, Go!

Will be interesting to see how well all this aggressive marketing goes for Ask in the end.

Could someone please tell us what the monkey is saying?!! No one I know can even understand what it is that the orangutan is saying? We are very curious. Thanks

 the commercial about the older couple who go to the bank and cash in their investments only to see they get worthless stacks of paper.  Bottom line is to invest in gold.  Can you bring this up on the internet? Dave
