Thanks to Isabell for sending the following to our goodies-l mailing list:
I received this message from the IPPL, International Primate Preservation League (UK), today (Thursday Oct 14th) via facebook:
"As part of its campaign to raise awareness and funds for gibbon conservation, IPPL, together with Bill Oddie, is re-releasing the Goodies’ hit 1970s single ‘The Funky Gibbon’. The track has been re-mastered and features real gibbon sounds. The music video to accompany the song is being filmed in London next Thursday starting from 10AM. The venue is still to be confirmed but looks likely to be the Rainforest Café on Shaftesbury Avenue near Piccadilly Circus tube station.
We have a professional choreographer and dancers lined up and the plan for the video is to have smartly-dressed volunteers who gradually loosen up and join in with the dancing. We are also looking for people to play grumpy pensioners drinking tea and glaring at the dancers, before finally joining in. Participation should be great fun and, of course, it’s all for an important cause. We are appealing for as many volunteers as possible to join in. Please register to participate by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will email you the details as they are confirmed. Any queries can also be directed to the same email address.
Thanks and best regards,
Helen, IPPL (UK) Director"
So that's *Thursday October 21st in London* - Goodies fans nearby, please represent the rest of us!
