Dopey mammoths stump for San Diego Zoo

Two not-so-smart mammoths hit just the right notes in these humorous ads by M&C Saatchi for the San Diego Zoo's "Elephant Odyssey" exhibit, a production "12,000 years in the making." In the spot above, they make the mistake of taking a mud bath in a tar pit, and only one prehistoric pachyderm is left bobbing in the ooze at the end. In the spot below, the wooly wonders get more than they bargained for when they stop to play with a "sabertooth kitty." Tusk tusk tusk, what a shame.
