Animal Planet on Sky Television

Sky‘s broadcast of Animal Planet in New Zealand was promoted through a series of print advertisements comparing the lives of animals with the lives of humans. Seals have to deal with mornings. Penguins go fishing. Lion cubs have to deal with brothers. Warthogs grapple with politics. Bears puzzle with relationships.

    Nice. A common comment when watching Animal Planet or Nat Geo is that ‘they are so much like humans’. This captures that thought well.
