LONDON, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
comparethemarket.com, one of the UK's leading price comparison websites, is launching the latest instalment of its popular meerkat-themed TV adverts to promote its car and home insurance comparison service.
The previous TV advert, voted most liked advert in January amongst viewers, saw the non-stop work of unclogging the credit card comparison service taken its toll on Sergei, with the Head of IT ending up in hospital with exhaustion.
This new 40 second advert sees Sergei "Meteorite Meerkat" being shot out of a cannon as part of a circus show. Aleksandr desperately tries to convince Sergei to come back and help comparethemeerkat.com get back on track redirecting car and home insurance queries meant for comparethemarket.com and promises to give away as many toys as it takes for people to know the difference.
For the sake of Sergei, people should visit comparethemarket.com and see just how much they could save on their car and home insurance. Plus get a quote on your insurance via comparethemarket.com and you can claim a meerkat toy as a reward*.
Fans of the meerkat pair can see the new TV advert from Monday 11th June at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkdDObPEr8M as well as Aleksandr Orlov's official Facebook and Twitter pages: http://www.facebook.com/Comparethemeerkat and @Aleksandr_Orlov.
