Coop a load of this.

Vauxhall Mokka: “Pigeons” - 30s

Directing duo DOM&NIC's CV includes teddy bears, rabbits, sloths, lizards, and tarsiers, among other animals. The two add pigeons to the list thanks to this Vauxhall commercial, which sees a woman turn heads and ruffle feathers in her new Mokka SUV.

Scored by a remix of MGMTs 'Electric Feel', the ad depicts pigeon-headed commuters, pedestrians, and motorists who are comfortable with their perch in life. The advertised vehicle is for those ready to explore other options.

It's a striking way to draw attention to the marque's petrol, diesel, and electric variants, with enough background gags to reward attentive viewers. Even the "impossible to pigeonhole" line is rendered palatable.
