The New John Lewis Christmas Ad Will Melt Your Heart

The New John Lewis Christmas Ad Will Melt Your Heart
Why Am I Crying?

I was having a rough morning when someone very special to me knew just what would cheer me up: penguins. Every year, UK department store John Lewis releases a new Christmas ad meant to tug on the heartstrings just before the holidays. Over the years, the annual ad has become a spectacle of sorts, with the store holding a screening of the commercial for its staff before a debuting the short at a red carpet premiere event at it’s flagship store in London. This year, £1 million went into making the commercial, with £6 million set aside for promotion…and, in my opinion, it was worth every penny. Keep reading »

Inca and Rayas are a pair of Gentoo penguins who have been in a committed relationship since they first met at a Madrid zoo six years ago. Every year since then, they’ve built a nest together in the apparent hopes that they could hatch and raise a baby penguin, but every year the nest has sat empty, most likely because Inca and Rayas are both male. This year, however, a penguin egg donor is finally making their dreams come true. “We wanted them to have something to stay together for — so we got an egg. Otherwise they might have become depressed,” said their keeper, Yolanda Martin. Initial reports reveal that Inca has been perching on the egg throughout the day, while Rayas stands guard. If all goes well, their little one will make an appearance by the end of June. Now, who wants to chip in for a baby shower gift? [Huffington Post UK]

Actually, Penguins Can Fly

Well, isn’t this quite a little riddle. When can a penguin — a bird that absolutely can’t normally fly — take to the sky? When it’s on a plane, silly. These two tuxedo-ed little guys were flying first class — naturally — from San Antonio to Atlanta. [YouTube]

Cute Penguin Upstaged By Other Cute Penguins

There’s really nothing cuter than an adorable penguin mugging for the camera. Except maybe two adorable penguins mugging for the camera. While this guy might be up close and personal with the camera man’s lens, it’s the two penguins nuzzling in the background that really caught our eye. [Telegraph UK]

In honor of Valentine’s Day, this penguin pair got married every day, twice a day, from Feb. 1-14, at China’s Shanghai Ocean Aquarium. Their Groundhogs Day-style ceremony went something like this: the couple arrived in a lucite box via remote-controlled Audi followed by a processional of two humans in penguin suits, they exchange head wreaths in front of a crowd of onlookers and rubbed beaks to seal the deal. And this is supposed to be romantic? Twenty-eight weddings in one month? I’m surprised they still can stand to be in the same lucite box with one another. I’m sure those gay penguins in Montreal are feeling really shitty about this ostentatious mockery of of the institution. If this doesn’t move the penguin community to organize for penguin marriage equality, I don’t know what will. [Dlisted]
