Winter Wonders

One of winter’s wonders is that while it’s winter here, it’s summer in the Southern Hemisphere…..where penguins live.


  1. So not only is the ad factually incorrect, but also environmentally insensitive and careless. At a time when penguins and their habitat are endangered I hardly think a shoe is what they need.

  2. I think it's a trend to use exotic or endangered animals in these ads. I looked through the archives, there are parrots, lions, bears, gorillas. Beirut doesn't have a zoo so this is the next best thing :)

  3. Maybe they should use a different kind of endangered species: The fully-dressed, unseductive female.
