Ellen DeGeneres talks with the animals

What is it about avatars that is so damn creepy? Is it that they never quite look like the person they are meant to depict? (Except maybe the Jesus avatar, because really, who’s to say?) While I ponder that, you can check out the Ellen DeGeneres avatar, pictured here, that is part of a new effort featuring the comedienne/talk show host from American Express. It features lots of animals and the opportunity to create a small clip featuring the Ellen avatar and the animals, although what it all has to do with American Express, well—not to be redundant—but who’s to say?
