Look at this really welcoming, friendly guy, wouldn’t you walk into a store if he towered above it?
I guess ‘welcoming’ isn’t the point of the green gorilla. He certainly did make for an eye-catching ‘STORE CLOSING’ sign. I stopped and sketched the drama. Lots of people pulled over and went in while I sketched. Empirical evidence shows that gigantic inflatable green gorillas make for great sale signs.
