Tony the Tiger in Tibet?

From The Worst Horse:

So, this seems to have offended some people:

Ross learned of it from the Gelug Yahoo Group, where someone there learned of it via the Candle4Tibet Network. Some of the discussion around it has been whether or not it’s offensive, especially to Tibetans. Maybe it is. Maybe it’s also great-looking and kinda cool. Maybe it’s all three.

What do you think?

It trades in stereotypes, so it may be offensive, but they are positive stereotypes in this case. It's also well done and nice to look at. And besides, it's kind of funny.
