I'm a total sucker for these ads!
However I came across this video explaining some of the habits of Adelie penguins in the wild: http://youtu.be/nua1aQeFF0s
Hopefully I haven't ruined the cuteness for anyone!

Anyone else annoyed that the penguin isn't real? I REALLY want him to be real, then I will steal him and he will be my best friend and we will go to the park and the library together and I will take him to the zoo to see his friends and and and :'( *starts crying uncontrollably*

I feel so sorry for the dude penguin who gets tricked into letting all his rocks get taken away. :cry2:

Adelie penguins are brutal. :shock:

That's why I want to do biology at uni- the natural world is shockingly fierce, resourceful and cunning.

I didn't get teary eyed at it but I don't usually at things, think I just like it because it has penguins and anything with penguins is awesome! Especially since the whole (well, original) reason I love them is because I had two penguin toys when I was little Which one was that?

Haha, fair to that one! It's the one where the little boy gets really excited about Christmas, but then he runs past his presents on Christmas Day to go to the cupboard and get his parents' presents. The gift of giving!

That is quite cute actually, don't remember seeing that before! This one's still better though although the music's not as good as it sometimes is

I don't know.. I think the main message is how much your gift (i.e the penguin's friend was given to the boy by his parents) can capture someone's imagination and change their life.

The message that love is all you need made me sad, I'm single
