Greenpeace got its hoax on last year with a fake website called Arctic Ready, which asked users to come up with their own Shell-related ads and aimed to draw attention to the company’s desire to drill for oil in the region. The best one, ‘You can’t run your SUV on cute. Let’s go’, was put on a massive billboard and erected outside Shell’s HQ in Houston. The organisation continues to fight against the proposed drilling and a ‘press release’ about Russian company Gazprom and Shell delivering a polar bear to Auckland Zoo that was sent to the media and published by stuff.co.nz seems to bear the mark of Greenpeace as well.
Stuff gets punk’d, polar style
