Panasonic to sponsor anti-whaling protests?

You might be surprised to hear that such a bastion of Japanese society would sponsor the new Sea Shepherd boat, but here it is in full technicolour (click on it for a larger pic, the logo is clearly visible on the near outrigger):

And here is the story about how this boat is joining forces with the Sea Shepherd expedition to harassment Japanese whalers.

Of course the sponsorship predates this announcement. I predict some rapid strategic re-painting.

They're painting it all black, like the rest of the SSCS fleet.

When you consider that most of Panasonics sales are outside Japan (why do you think they changed the name of the company to match the brand) not so surprising

That's a shame. Have to photoshop it back :-)
