Bedstead Polisher: What the heck is simples? How did talking about a Russian meerkat's book rating explain it?


It's part of an ad campaign by an UK and Aussie site called comparethemarket.com, which features a Russian meerkat named Alexander whose catchphrase is, "Simples."  It became a meme in the UK.

Irregardless.

Misunderestimate

Let's loop back and put a pin on this.  We need to be on the bleeding edge.  Let's identify via SWOT analysis, crosscutting issues and ethically rightsource underserved platforms that will be force multipliers in new media, to heighten awareness and find sustainably sourced and empowered stakeholders that will aggressively monetize e-markets, consistent with our core values.  can I get your buy-in?

Now that I've googled it, "simples" literally means "simple." Kind of ironic that the simplest explanation was not used in its description.
