    Tux Sightings

    Ok so I was watching a Fruit Loops commercial and it looked like Tux, the Penguin. What do you guys think?

    Re: Tux Sightnings

    Yea, that's not some look alike, that's really Tux !!

    Did you make that video?

    EDIT: maybe Fruitloops used Linux software to make, well, Fruitloops? Or this commercial? Or it was just some dude making it, who liked Linux?

    More editing: it also looks kinda like Tux Racer.

    Last edit, I promise: you made a boo boo in the title, it's 'sightings'.

    Haha I fat fingered it - sightnings lol

    No it's not my video there, its one that I just searched: Fruit Loops Commercial 2011 and that was the first result.

    I just like seeing Tux out and about.

    Nope I didn't say that, it just closely resembled tux compared to Tux Racer, Super Tux, Tux Kart, etc.

    Penguins of Madagascar don't look like Tux, same with Happy Feet, same with March of the Penguins.

    Life is an extraordinarily long concatenation of luck and coincidence.

    It is without a doubt Tux. Check out the vid, if you haven't already.

    They are very similar, but not the same.
