Get to work on an egg

This most unlikely marketing proposition is appearing in France for Eurostar - timed to coincide with the inquest on dead lovers in Paris ?

It's appearing now? If that's not an urban legend, it' very odd. Would like to see a photo of the ad in situ on a billboard or something. Somebody must indeed be 'avin' a larf.

The photograph was taken by Patrick de Villiers more than a year ago. I don't know the exact date, but certainly before I used it as research in one of my college projects.

Scroll through under the adverts tab.

Source is ma belle sœur and poster is contemporary on Metro etc., slight textual change with url in top left.

Re-cycled (Fr. recycler) ad ?

Perhaps mon theorie c'est vrai?

Love Patrice's site - those M&S ads. The food looks good enough to eat - something ma sœur is now denied in Paris.

Perhaps Eurostar should take a leaf out of their book and use pics of blackberry crumble instead of a lard loaded English fry up ?

Haha, yes!

Can you please ask your dear sister to kindly take a photo with her phone or whatever she has at hand, of said advert on at the Gare du Nord, or anywhere, really? Would love to blog it. Merci bien.
