Renault Koleos Meerkats Wildly Civilized

Renault is promoting the Renault Koleos with a global advertising campaign, Meerkats. The high-brow Renault 4×4 Koleos appears in the wilds of Safrica, inspiring a formal and classy response from the local meerkats. Initially we observe them in their natural habitat play-fighting, picking fleas, lazing around in an unflattering manner. When they hear the Koleos approaching they head off to change into their tuxedos, appearing again in a civilized and genteel fashion, chins up, chest out, arms down. The Renault Koleos Meerkats commercial slows down the car’s motion to provide a mirror effect for the meerkats.
