The bizarre incident left witnesses baffled. Image Credit: sxc.hu
Police in London were left perplexed this week after a man was spotted driving a rather peculiar vehicle.
The gigantic motorized foot, which was being driven along the streets of the British capital by a man wearing a silver costume and crash helmet, ended up becoming something of a social media sensation when a local police department posted a picture of it online.


It was eventually revealed that the stunt was part of a promotion for the Wandsworth Arts Fringe festival and that the idea for it had been masterminded by the 'Ministry of Silly Ideas.'[!gad]The gigantic motorized foot, which was being driven along the streets of the British capital by a man wearing a silver costume and crash helmet, ended up becoming something of a social media sensation when a local police department posted a picture of it online.

If there were a lot of these vehicles you would see them in a traffic toe jam. Foot traffic means something different now.

Interesting, a bare foot inching along to a hand car wash. Any faster and he would be ticketed for athlete's foot.
