Heidi The Cross-Eyed Opossum

Becomes German Media Sensation

Quote

The German tabloid Bild has ‘discovered’ a darling cross-eyed opossum named Heidi in the Leipzig Zoo and launched her to marsupial stardom.

When the pictures of Heidi were released they went viral, and she was put on television, received her own Facebook page, and even inspired a song and a YouTube video.

Composer and wedding musician Stefan Langner said “We saw Heidi on TV, and we were so charmed, that we had to write a song about it,” reported Spiegel Online. According to Lagner, the recording attracted 6,000 clicks within its first three days on YouTube, but to date there have been over 13,000 visitors.

Heidi also has a stuffed animal being made to resemble her, which will be available in two sizes and in two weeks. One will be a 50-centimeter life-size toy.

The owner of the business producing the stuffed toys said part of the proceeds will benefit Heidi,”It really is surprising how famous and loved she is — I guess it has to do with being cross-eyed,” said Dr. Helmut Schache, of the toy manufacturer Kösen, reported Spiegel Online.

Heidi is now part of an exclusive club of animals in Germany who have gained world-wide fame; animals in the group include Knut, the celebrity polar bear and Paul, the ‘psychic’ octopus.

No, I'm not making this up. Link below.
