More Sergei Drama in the Latest comparethemarket.com Credit Card Ad
LONDON, March 19, 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 credit card
The previous TV advert, voted most liked advert in January amongst viewers, saw
Aleksandr Orlov make a tough decision regarding Sergei’s future. With more people
mistaking ‘comparethemarket.com’ for ‘comparethemeerkat.com’ following the launch of
comparethemarket.com’s credit card comparison service
[http://www.comparethemarket.com/credit-cards ], Sergei struggled to cope with the
increased workload. To help Sergei, Aleksandr decided to give him a laptopmabob.
In the latest advert the much-loved Aleksandr and Sergei are back to remind viewers to
visit the correct website. Viewers will find that the non-stop work of unclogging credit
card comparisons has taken its toll on Sergei with the Head of IT ending up in hospital
with exhaustion. Meanwhile, Aleksandr is forced to consider just how much he can’t afford
to lose his loyal sidekick…
For the sake of Sergei, people should visit comparethemarket.com and see just how much
they could save by switching credit cards. Plus get a credit card or loan via
comparethemarket.com [http://www.comparethemarket.com/loans ] and you can claim a meerkat
toy as a reward*.
Fans of the meerkat pair can see the TV advert from Monday 19th March. For those who
can’t wait that long, an exclusive preview is available today (16th March) at
http://www.youtube.com/comparethemeerkat as well as Aleksandr Orlov’s official
