But then Gorilla Glue, the original, would be Ape Glue which doesn't sound as good.

Unless they keep the logo and they just use an umbrella Company like Homininae and keep the alliteration going.

based, gorilla fuckin sucks

Ape tape does sound more racist for some reason.

Also, why's the gorilla brown there? Who the fuck ever saw a brown gorilla?

if it was black it should have been mix tape

Artistic license. Black linework and shadow needs a lighter color for contrast if the design is to pop. Check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tincture_(heraldry) The practice is ancient, but it's still applicable to graphic design, particularly things like logos that need to be legible and distinct.

The eastern girillas have brown fur on their head back and sometimes shoulders.

The problem with these tests is they always pit Gorilla and T-Rex (2 premium brands of "heavy duty" duct tape against entry level duct tapes. No shit they will do better.
What I'd like to see is, for instance, how 3M's professional "heavy duty" range of products fare against T-Rex and Gorilla.

Testing a non permanent adhesive tape meant to be torn by hand just on adhesion and breaking strength is stupid.

It's easy to make a tape which will pull the veneer off the wood and which won't tear, if you don't mind making very shitty duck tape.

>>1645955
Yeah, and very unfair to shit.

If they won't demo them against those you have your answer.

>nuclear tape
LOL
But I assume this is about the tape being "certified for low leachable halogens and sulfur", not that it's significantly stronger or more adhesive?
>>
>>1648358
I was just looking around on google and apparently the US Navy used to be issued a tape referred to as EB Green that was supposedly unbeatable.
