Babaloons & Tunes Singing Telegram’s staff of expert performing messengers crafts custom communications for unsuspecting significant others, close friends, or birthday celebrants. Upon finding its addressee after a diligent search, Gorilla in a Tutu—the company’s most popular character—celebrates with a victory dance. The elegantly costumed ape then supplies each honored guest with a 36-inch mylar balloon, a tiara or hat, and a party horn, whose sound can summon Jane Goodall from up to 1,000 miles away. After serenading his recipient with a personalized song and conjuring a confetti rainfall, Gorilla in a Tutu reads personalized messages aloud, and, for telegrams delivered on Valentine’s Day, a special mug brimming with chocolates. For an additional fee, customers can upgrade to one of Babaloons & Tunes Singing Telegram’s extensive selection of other characters such as a classic tuxedoed messenger, Marilyn Monroe, Cupid, or a messenger dressed in drag.
