An inflatable gorilla promotes the Indianapolis Zoo on the side of what is now OneAmerica Tower in 1988.Since the original “King Kong” movie, giant gorillas and tall buildings go together. But motorists surely were a bit surprised one morning in 1988 to see this 40-foot, 300-pound inflatable gorilla on the side of AUL Tower holding a sign saying “AUL goes ape over the new zoo.” This was the company’s way of promoting the Indianapolis Zoo, which had relocated to White River State Park.
