Aleksandr, the meerkat and his traveling accent are back in a new spot for Comparethemarket.com. VCPP and Director Simon Cole bring back the formerly Russian-sounding furry founder of comparethemeerkat.com for a conciliatory duet with his nemesis, the British finance and insurance company's mock-CEO Maurice WIgglethorpe-Throom. "Gingery and Furry," their take on the 80's classic "Ebony and Ivory" starts off peacefully enough, but things take a turn when one's show of good faith is spoiled by the other.
