Within hours, it was discovered that the giant foot-vehicle was a promotional tool to drum up awareness for next month’s Wandsworth Fringe Festival. The event’s Ministry of Silly Ideas built the motorized appendage.

The annual art festival will feature 16 days of music and theater and if the promotional tool is any indication, it seems this year’s festival could be the biggest yet.
