Just last week, Shaun White was in Dubai for some adventure time with his gang. The legend, who was invited there to snowboard at Ski Dubai, also took his friends along with him and they had a crazy time there. In addition, he also visited the newly constructed Museum of Dubai, the sand dunes of Dubai, and went all the way to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

White referred to the iconic 2006 movie as he wrote, “Everyone needs a hug 🤗 🐧 so stoked to meet the cast of #happyfeet.” While the pictures show White hugging one of the penguins, a video also captures him feeding them a fish. 
As a movie, Happy Feet also has a sequel which was released in 2011 and received with open arms. Now it’s clear that the three-time Olympic champion has also watched this movie and loves it.
