Meerkat Manor – Animal Planet spoofs ‘The Sopranos’ in new ad

August 4, 2007

This is a bit OT, but I thought it was so cute, I just had to share. I love this ad for the new season of Animal Planet’s Meerkat Manor. I scanned it from the August 10th edition of the Entertainment Weekly magazine.

MeerKat Ad

One can only assume the folks at HBO are chuckling over it. Personally, I think it’s a very cool ad, very clever publicity. It certainly caught my eye, and I’ll be tuning in. It doesn’t hurt that meerkats are almost disgustingly cute little creatures.

Update:  Someone mentioned on their livejournal that they’d love to have this ad as a poster. I agree.
