Cops Finally Catch Big Foot... Sort Of
It was stunt to promote an upcoming arts festival.
Police in London have finally caught big foot.
A man wearing a silver suit and helmet was standing inside a massive foot and driving it down a sidewalk in the Wandsworth section of the city.
Cops on foot patrol stopped the strange vehicle and posted about the encounter on Twitter.

Confused pedestrians posted videos and photos on social media after seeing the giant foot.
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.
