The holiday season is upon us and of course it means we get bombarded with "special holiday edition" of everything imaginable. My recent favourite is the Tim Horton's coffee cup design with a cheerful illustrated scene of winter wonderland. I especially love the two snowmen toasting each other with a steaming cup of coffee in their hands...are they suicidal or something?!
Another favourite of mine is the Coca Cola polar bears and penguins commercial. The furry little animals are so cute and adorable, no? Well, they are except that it doesn't make any sense at all. When I saw that commercial for the first time in a movie theatre, I immediate pointed at the screen and exclaimed "That would never happen! Polar bears and penguins live across the globe. They can't possibly meet!". When the bears slid across the snow to be among the penguins, I thought to myself "Mmm, buffet". However, I still love this commercial despite of its complete lack of common sense. After all, it's the holiday seasons and everybody is entitled to do what they need to do to give us that warm and fuzzy feeling, don't you think?
