For the record, this ads-the-same paean to penguin chic really does seem to work out. Al Gores important film, An Inconvenient Truth, adopted this same approach in its ads—and even now, in its ninth week, it was the tenth-biggest film in the country on both Tuesday and Wednesday nights of this week. Of course, the connection there is a bit more clear. Gores film features a frog and a polar bear, and theyre closely related to penguins.
