Help Crash CareerBuilder’s Super Bowl Party

Written by PETA | February 6, 2011

Cartoon chimpanzees are getting animated over on CareerBuilder‘s Facebook page, and we think you should join them! CareerBuilder aired a Super Bowl ad in which it once again exploited chimpanzees in order to make the point that … wait, what point was it making? That it can find jobs for chimpanzees?

Anyway, the message we heard is that CareerBuilder is determined to keep using ape “actors” in its ads, despite the fact that the chimpanzees are stolen from their mothers as babies, threatened and beaten to make them perform, and shoved into small, filthy cages when they aren’t out earning money for their trainers.

We want to show CareerBuilder how these apes feel about its cruel ads. You can join in the fun by posting comments on the company’s Facebook page about how awful it is to be abused by CareerBuilder. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    melmac – As an animal protection organization, PETA believes that animals are not ours to use for entertainment. You can help us put a stop to the abuse of animals in the entertainment industry by contacting companies responsible for ads featuring live animals. By speaking out against programs that use animals this way, you can help change the way animals are used in the television and film industries. For letter-writing tips, please visit

    There’s no way I’ll use Career Builder now. Not only did you support the exploitation and abuse of chimpanzees, but you hurt your business by displaying your cowardice, and lack of common decency.

  • melmac says:

    What about the beaver with Bridgestone Tire (who used a real beaver as well as mechanical one) and of course the Clydesdales with Budweiser? Why aren’t we protesting their ads as well if we’re supposed to protect the animals and protest their use in these ads?

    I thought the commercial was funny.

    Please show compassion for the animals while they are in your care. Also, please switch to modern and superior non-animal methods in your training courses. Animals are Gods glory also. Graceful Blessings, Beata Dechnik

    I loved the Bridgestone commercial with the beaver and the bridge. It was cute, AND computerized/ cruelty free! 🙂

    My comment and a few others were just deleted and I was blocked from commenting on facebook again. Pfft! Career builder are a bunch of cowards. What are they going to do? Delete every other comment as well? Ha!

    Your chimpanzee commercials are so wrong it is an absolute wrong to air them. I will NEVER use CareerBuilder’s services again.
