Doesn't this also mean the poor animals are being tortured by keeping the place open till midnight? Confusing. I feel no humor seeing it.

I actually worked at Al Ain Zoo while the shoot was on. They tortured the animals. The cheetah ate the monkeys, and the hippo is still chained and apparently hasn't slept since... Bastards!!!

Very well but does this really portray humor? Doesn't it portray the serious unfriendly condition towards animals by keepng unnatural lights on during nights?

The condition in which these animals are trying to avoid the glaring light? Maybe it was stock photography or computer manipulation. Still does it arouse a positive feeling seeing these poor animals suffer. Maybe the motto was to provoke humor but isn't that not conveying the opposite? That was the point I wanted to make. Nothing personal. Thanks.
