Cirque du Soleil and McQueen?

Cirque du Soleil unveiled its latest traveling show, TOTEM, in its hometown of Montreal last week. . .and to my surprise. . .do the butterflies look familiar? I came across an enormous advertisement in one of Montreal's downtown Metro stations... and I had to take a picture (I always carry a camera with me!)  The circus inspired by haute couture? I love it.
