    Danish toy maker Lego won't renew marketing deal with Shell after Greenpeace campaign

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Danish toy maker Lego says it won't renew a deal allowing Shell to hand out Lego sets at gas stations in some 30 countries, following a viral campaign protesting Arctic drilling.

    In July, Greenpeace launched a video showing an Arctic landscape with a Shell drilling platform made of Lego bricks covered in oil.

    Lego CEO Joergen Vig Knudstorp said Thursday that the protest "may have created misunderstandings among our stakeholders," adding Lego didn't want to be embroiled in the protest campaign.

    Lego had kept a low profile over the Greenpeace campaign until Thursday's announcement it would not renew its 2011 promotion deal with the oil company. Lego has declined to give any details about the deal, such as when it expires.

    Greenpeace described Lego's announcement as "fantastic news."

    For starters, the Greenpeace assholes, then LEGO for caving and allowing Greenpeace to cream themselves.

    Fucking Greenpeace. :facepalm:

    45 years of people wasting their time desperately wishing we could somehow affordably provide for the energy needs of 6 billion people by capturing and refining unicorn farts.

    Just think for one second about what life on this planet would be like if we granted the Greenpeacers their ultimate wet dream and put them in charge of all energy creation projects on the planet. How many millions (billions?) of people would die in the first five years?

    Or maybe, if they were finally put in a position of true responsibility for the first time in their miserable lives, they would actually clue in and come to realize that their party line rhetoric was complete and utter bullshit. You know, kind of like the difference between what Obama said he was going to do when campaigning in 2007, versus the policies he's actually pursued (albeit ineptly) since having been elected.

    wow.

    that's something. i haven't looked into the world of legos in about 40 years. i'm thinking things have changed a bit.

    amazon has a bunch of kits. i want to build something but i have a limited imagination and might just end up making a bunch of squares. i like the structure of a theme kit.

    more toys. :leaf:
