Four players from the Exeter Chiefs, a premiere English rugby team, donned body paint to film a commercial for the Paignton Zoo. Justin Blanchet, his brother Sam Blanchet, Matt Jess and Fetu u Vainikolohad were transformed into a zebra, a cheetah, a mandrill and an antelope.
Paignton Zoo, long-time sponsors of the club, recruited the four Exeter players to help with the new ad. Kate Jenkins, from RH, said: "It’s based on the idea of survival of the fittest and natural selection, which seems to apply in both the animal kingdom and the rugby world, so it seemed natural to combine the two by painting the rugby players as wild animals. We tried to choose animals that would reflect the idea of two teams – predators versus prey."- http://www.exeterchiefs.co.uk/news/chiefs-take-whole-new-look/
Proving once again that rugby players are willing to take their clothes off for a good cause, or no cause at all.
