Pingu is still the big star and turning on the town's lights.

The Z-list personality is turning on the Alhambra lights.

With his horrid little troll face, he'd be better suited to a halloween event.

If you dont have nothin nice to say, then dont say nothin at all!!

Why does everyone have to be so negative? Christ! Some people are just NEVER happy! Who are you expecting to switch on the lights then? Brad Pitt? Johnny Depp?
Why can't you just enjoy the event and have fun regardless to who is switching on the lights! If you want some amazing A-lister to switch on the lights then get out your cheque book because you'd only whinge and moan about the waste of money in this town!
