Appstore picks - are they random?

Does Apple make his pics in random order?

Just saw in the Spanish AppStore this pick from the staff

Öffnungszelten Schweiz

I don't know what this does (comes in reference), cause all the description text is in German

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=319827004&mt=8

In Spain the second languague is English but few Spanish guys speak German.

So anyone at Apple haved a bad day?

Please focus in games in your replies.

I just received a reply fom Apple saying that the AppStore (i think the picks) are shared between some countries.

That explains it.
