I've seen the same with Arabic translations. I suspect it's an artefact of translation and how idiom translates, not the original language itself.

Here's one from Oman, advertising the Khareef rainy season:

    Mist of JOY! JOY with MISTY Mountains and Springs!
    Scroll around in the lush GREEN Mountains!
    Shower and get wet in the Chilly Weather!
