Introducing J.R. !

By now most of you have seen the famous Kia commercial featuring a sock monkey which debuted on Superbowl Sunday. After doing a little research, I was delighted to contact Bonnie Connelly who served as consultant to the advertising agency hired by Kia. Coincidentally, Bonnie authored a book I own called "Everything's Coming Up Sock Monkeys." She made the small sock monkey that appeared in the back seat of the Kia at the end of the commercial. On her web site,
In My Own Dream Studio,
I was able to purchase a replica of the Kia "Joy Ride" monkey. My new monkey is named J.R. Even though he is a pretty famous monkey, J.R. is surprisingly down to earth and laid back as all sock monkeys should be.

Here are J.R.'s credentials. He's a V.I.P. (Very Important Primate)
