CINCINNATI, May 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a ball. It's a strike. It's an uncanny replica of the Cincinnati Zoo's Silverback Colossus gorilla, and he's taking the field at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Unsuspecting fans did a double take when the new mascot of the popular Gorilla Glue® brand made his home field debut, after tackling some quick DIY repairs at the entrance of the clubhouse.

The gorilla, who personifies the brand motto "For the Toughest Jobs on Planet Earth," is  featured in national commercials, where he drops in on homeowners to help them with repairs, but this was his first major appearance before the general public. Quick thinking fans snapped his photo as he gave his trademark grunt of approval for the Reds' performance.
