    You can see it because of the pixels and the photoshops you've seen in your day?

    They are the same.

    Oh my gosh...

    there's been a picture of tux stenciled on this concrete wall for years in the downtown area of my city. The next time I drive by, I'll have to snap a pic.

    Oh look, overall it looks the same, but theres a pixel wrong, so it isnt.

    I bet you've seen a lot of photoshops in your day, eh.

    Re: Tux Sightnings

    Looking at body shape, coloring and body position, it's super similar. Only thing I can see missing is the arms. If anything, it's a variant of Tux. But IMHO, a variant of Tux is still Tux. It's akin to my wife cutting her hair. She may look different, but she's still my wife.

    It is Tux. Wow.

    Penguins of Madagascar don't look like Tux <snipped>
    That's true, but one of the penguins (namely, Private) actual name is Mr. Tux. Interesting, no?

    Indeed. I'd say a relative with slightly less weight around the midsection. But add some weight, and it's Tux.

    I don't see penguins with that face and body shape that aren't intentionally trying to emulate Tux' look. Cut off my arms and suddenly I'm unrecognizable, eh? Sounds like a pretty morbid assumption.

    Looks like a tribute from one (or more) artist who drew/desing/made the commercial; probably the company itself (both client and producer of the spot) are unaware of it.
