An ocelot in the fridge

Storage company National Mini Storage has for quite some time now been borrowing the comedic talents of Leigh Hart to convince Kiwis that storage might be a viable solution to their clutter. And in a new, completely ridiculous spot, the bald funny man advises that house-selling Kiwis with weirder interests might benefit from storing a few of their more unsightly items away.     

This spot, which was made by Hart's Moon Media and production company Blackbox, follows on from an equally quirky ad that featured the elaborate backstory of Hart's success—and, as an added bonus, it includes the use of a very poofy wig.   

Last year, National Mini Storage also ran a short webseries that featured interviews with the interesting characters that use the company's services.
