Here in the UK the Compare The Meerkats adverts have been popular for many years with the main characters of Aleksandr Orlov and his sidekick Sergei having many fans. In fact such is Aleksandr’s popularity that in 2010 his autobiography was released and famously managed to secure more pre-orders than either Tony Blair or Cheryl Cole managed for their books.
Liz has apparently been persuaded to take part in the latest Meerkats ad campaign by her young son Damian who is a big fan of the ads.
The new ad features Liz dressed in her Vanessa Kensington leather catsuit from the 1997 AP movie and she said that although she feared she was a little heavier than she was the first time she wore it she was pleased to report that it fitted her perfectly.
Although she wore her Austin Powers leather catsuit it is actually some more adventurous movies that the company has used for its latest campaign.
Liz and her meerkat friends can be seen recreating scenes from Mission Impossible as well as James Bond. Maiya the meerkat is even seen posing on the bonnet of the iconic Bond Aston Martin DB5.
Liz and Maiya the meerkat launched their new ad campaign with a special event held last night at The Troxy in London. Liz looked in superb shape and nothing like her actual 48-years as she posed in a daring emerald-green halterneck gown which featured a cut-out section exposing her cleavage. The gown was designed by Issa London and she paired it with some stylish gold heels from Patrick Cox.
As far as the new ad goes it is best to leave the final word to the main meerkat himself, Aleksandr Orlov who said: ‘Maiya was once greatest spy in all Russia. She is love comparing furs on photo shootings with Elizabeth Hurley and talking ex spy ladykat secrets.’
