This year's CareerBuilder Super Bowl spot again features personified chimpanzees, something that consumers demanded after seeing the company's funny ape-filled ad during last year's Super Bowl.

Why do so many people love the crazy chimps in the CareerBuilder Super Bowl ads? Well, the commercials do a great job of comparing your co-workers to apes, showcasing how incredibly stressful and annoying it can be when you're not in the job you want. According to Jennifer Grasz, a spokeswoman for CareerBuilder, the campaign is something that "job seekers identify with and act upon."

This year's CareerBuilder Super Bowl spot, made by an in-house agency, cost the company $3.5 million. Check out the amusing sneak peek for the ad here.
