A simples life

I am delight. Today wonderful peoples from the Amazon have send me the book of my dream. It is call 'A Simples Life' by Russian billionaire meerkat, Aleksandr Orlov. Aleksandr has become very famous in my country and he can be seen on the tellymabob every day. As nation we love him and delight in comparing meerkats. For compare meerkats just go to website.

This is book. It look very good and I can't wait for reading it.
This Aleksandr, very grand and sophisticated meerkat. 

I can't keep up the style, so, this is me. I first became aware of Aleksandr Orlov when I saw him in his television advert more than a year ago. I thought that the whole concept of basing an advertising campaign on a pun was genius. Then I found that the website contained in the adverts really existed and you could go on there and compare meerkats. Slowly the website grew as new adverts were made. Then came the films which tell of his family history, their struggle from the Kalahari to Russia, the great wars against the mongoose hordes and the setting up of the concept of comparing meerkats on the streets of Moscow. Genius, pure genius.

I should say that these films actually advertise an insurance comparison website but do so by telling people not to go to that site.
See for yourselves. start at the bottom of the page and work up to see the adverts in order. this is the first film the second film and this is the third. They did not go through all that to give you cheap deal on your car insurance. Simples.

I love the voice, the cod Russian accent, the humour and the brilliant characters.
And now I have book too. Simples delightful.
