AT&T’s White Yeti

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 24th, 2008

I’ll say it again. Hollywood and mythical Yetis are white, but the real ones reported by Sherpas, Nepalese, Tibetans, and other locals are brownish-red to black.

Oh well, it’s harmless enough, I suppose. I would recommend they run this again, late in December.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Yeti should be brown or dark in color as they are reported, but I suppose that depicting these darker creatures in a snowy habitat might be a bit jarring to audiences.

    But, I do love these AT&T commercials, and I loved the heroic Yeti in “The Mummy: The Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.” In fact, IMO, they were the best part of that movie!

    Yes, the Yeti in Tomb of the Dragon Emperor were enough for me to recommend the movie to others. It was nice to see the Yeti (and, hopefully, its cousins across the pond) portrayed in a very positive light.

  3. red_pill_junkie responds:

    It’s hopeless, the cultural meme forces us to think of Yetis as white, and Nessie as a plesiosaur.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
