Nemesys Clothing line to give iPhones, iPod touches to Chimps

Sep '07
U.S. chimps will be cooler than most humans, thanks to high end men's street wear label, Nemesys Clothing. The Company announced the launch of its charitable program, Project

The program will focus on donating Apple iPhones and iPod Touches to chimpanzees in need across the United States. Nemesys Clothing pledges to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of its 2007 Beginnings Collection, officially releasing September 26th, to fund the effort.

The new line will be available for pre-order from 10AM EDT on Wednesday, September 19th, exclusively through.

"There are many firms in the world which aid people in need, but there are few firms looking to help technologically impaired chimpanzees," stated Nemesys Clothing CEO, Umair Hussain.

"We believe that chimpanzees should have the opportunity to be able to swing from trees while watching fellow chimps do the same thing on YouTube."

Through Project iChimp, chimpanzees residing in the U.S. will receive 8GB Apple iPhones and 8GB iPod Touches. Nemesys stated that although it will provide the phones, it won't pay for the monthly service charges.

"We are proud to be able to make a huge difference in the lives of chimpanzees that had previously been banished to using cheap Korean cell phones," remarked CEO Umair Hussain.

"We believe other animals will become jealous, once they realize that the iPhone is the single greatest invention since the wheel, and that the new iPod is the greatest invention since the iPhone."
