SpecSavers Koala

Specsavers is running “Koala”, a television commercial promoting the brand’s deals on contact lenses. A woman reading a Specsavers newspaper ad in a park is surprised by the appearance of a curious koala (created entirely in CGI). They struggle briefly over the newspaper before the koala gets to reads the Specsavers’ offer for itself. Why the koala? Koalas have poor eyesight.
