Bootleg copies of "March of the Penguins" were seized by customs agents as they were being imported into the country. Over 10,000 dvds were found in shipping cases destined for distribution all thoughout the country.
The movie, originally released in 2005, detailed the lives and habitat of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica. The movie was an international hit and came as part of several movies (mostly animated) to feature penguins.
The seized movie, however, is not the one which played in theatres. According to one Custom's Official, Carlos LaMigra, it "appears to be mostly scenes of nuns walking down the street."
"Yes, they are all dressed in black and white, just like the ones at the South Pole. Yes, they do mostly have these huge beaks and don't really turn on anyone. Yes, they do have these screechy voices. They are not, however, the penguins of the movie that kids and adults both love."
The captured dvds will be burned and an investigation will continue to seek the culprits responsible.
