Slash, Betty White Star In New Los Angeles Zoo Ad

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Slash and Betty White have been caught on video, getting wild.

The unlikely duo star in a new commercial for the Los Angeles Zoo’s newest exhibit, The LAIR (Living Amphibian, Invertebrates and Reptiles). The exhibit opens March 8.

The commercial, uploaded to YouTube last week, shows the guitarist and the comedienne peering into a frog exhibit.

White says, “You can tell which one is male or female by the dark pads on their fingers.”

“Really?” Slash says in reply. “That’s cool.”

The LAIR exhibits will include the world’s largest amphibian – the Chinese giant salamander – several species of poison dart frogs, giant horned lizards, Fiji island banded iguanas and the only species of venomous lizards – the gila monster and beaded lizard.

Visitors will also get a chance to check out creepy crawlers like scorpions, centipedes and dozens of types of snakes, like the Mang Shan viper from the mountains of China, a fast slender arboreal snake from Africa and the Bushmaster – the largest venomous snake of the Americas – and the green mamba. (No relation to Kobe Bryant or Jeremy Lin.)

White is chair of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association and Slash is a trustee of the organization.

    Any fool can see that the city of Los Angeles is absolutely sick with corruption to its very core, Mayor Villaraigosa and his minions on the city council have allowed children to fall into the hands of pedophiles and proven time and again that the way of their city government is the way of corruption. The simple fact is when there are problems with corruption in government you need only look at the officials elected to run it to find the source.
    How long will the people of Los Angeles put up with this gross mismanagement, gross misconduct, and disgustingly gross incompetence on the part of the mayor and city council? The list of their personal and professional failures, misdeeds, and suspicious activities goes on for miles, and yet still they sit in office where they can run the city into the ground. It simply astounds me.
