I still really enjoy the 'Compare the Meerkat' adverts. I find them funny.
and for that, I hate them
without some moron `amusing` his kids by doing russian accents and saying `simples`.
These adverts have ruined certain specific sections of zoo visiting for me.
and overfilled your mum.
everyone was shouting simples at them and stuff. Then one of the meerkats ate its own baby (or perhaps a rival meerkat's baby?), and all the people tried to pretend it wasn't happening.
that's one of the best stories
It was horrifying and hilarious at the same time.
they do that.
meerkats are assholes.
:D :D :D
but now it's empty.
But it still smells pooey.
Because the Go Compare ones get progressively more awful.
definitely ruined meerkats for me a bit, but compared to your average long running advert series thay're pretty good fun (I mean, it's a world away from the turgid shite BT keep spewing out). Also years on and I'm still pretty vague about what compare the market actually does apart from make meerkat toys - is it just car insurance? Other insurance? Things other than insurance..?
we're talking about compare the meerket, pal.
with back stories for each of the characters, videos etc.
Need someone to be sanctimoniously offended on your behalf? The Guardian's got your back.
Turns out that Meerkats are cunts, especially the ladies, driving off family memebers and biting nieces to death. Somewhere the anthropomorphism went astray even if you call them Flower and Poppy.
but hearing anyone say "simples" in my every day life makes me a bit upset.
got a little dmitri toy and everything. you and my dad.
