British rugby stars take on bizarre new look for zoo promotion

That wasn't a ferocious pack of wild animals on a rugby field in south England on Monday. It was just a few members of the Exeter Chiefs rugby team channeling their inner beast with a little help from a make-up crew.

The sight of a zebra, cheetah, mandrill and gazelle scrumming for the ball was nothing less than bizarre, but it was all in a days work for four players from the Chiefs who were covered in body paint filming an advertisement for a local zoo.

Justin Blanchet was transformed into a zebra, his brother Sam was turned into cheetah, Fetu u Vainikolohad had his head and shoulders painted as a zebra and Matt Jess took on the role of a mandrill.

The wildlife-themed ad was for nearby Paignton Zoo in the south England county of Devon.

Still very weird.
