A street identified as being the most accident prone in Britain, has been covered in bubble wrap to protect residents from harming themselves. Somerville road in Worcester has averaged 10 insurance claims every year for the last decade, so insurance company decided to wrap the whole street up in bubble wrap during January 2010's treacherous weather conditions.
Everything from cars, bins, lamp posts and even garden gnomes were wrapped in over 1,500 sq metres of the safety blanket in a ploy by a car insurance firm to highlight the dangers of driving in the winter. Covering it in bubble wrap was therefore seen as a necessary stunt by one car insurance firm as a way of reminding residents to drive more carefully in the bad weather to prevent more claims being made.
The stunt took over 12 hours to complete and took the efforts of eight men who succeeded in managing to even cover some of the houses with the pop-tastic wrapping.
This cup of coffee looks so much like an owl. At first glance we would think it was photoshopped, but upon further investigating we would find it’s the real deal. This owl hiding out in a coffee cup made a big splash when British conceptual artist Stuart Rutherford let him fly all over Twitter with the message "Who'd a thunk dunking a couple of Hula Hoops in your coffee would be so beautiful."
This wise old bird is actually the result of two yummy Hula Hoops (a cylindrical potato snack beloved by British kids for their ability to fit on little fingers like tasty, salty rings) plunked into a cup of joe.
