Bus stops confusing punters by replacing pee with potatoes
Question: what does your average bus shelter smell of? Hands up if you just shouted ‘URINE!’ at the top of your voice, or at least another word for urine. You may or may not be correct, but right now, there are a bunch of bus shelters around the land that reek of nothing but freshly baked potatoes. Aaaahhhh….
Don’t worry, it’s not some kind of weird quirk relating to an alien invasion (that WAS your first thought wasn’t it?) – it’s actually an ad campaign by McCain as part of their attempt to flog their ready-baked jacket potatoes
How does the 3D ad panel work? “It’s connected to Hades via a tungsten pipe” said a spokesman for McCain. No, wait, wrong story. In fact, “a hidden heating element gently warms the potato”. In the picture, the woman is holding her cold hands to the baked vegetable, so perhaps they emit a nice heat too – or perhaps she just uses freshly baked potatoes as a heat source at home.
