    Giant Octopus Causes Traffic Chaos In London

    giant-octopus-traffic-choas

    A giant octopus caused traffic chaos in London today when the lorry carrying it broke down in the busy Oxford Circus.

    Transport for London quickly jumped on the Octopus bandwagon and tweeted a picture of it, and urged rush hour commuters to “Approach with care” as the giant sea creature blocked the roads.

       

    It was later announced that this was a Octopus travelling to a Betfair World Cup advertising campaign.

    It caused such a social media stir that this is probably more successful advertising than what they were intending for the Octopus. Either that or it is a very clever PR stunt orchestrated by Betfair.

    ….What do you think?

    You’d have to be nuts to attempt to cross Meskel Square in Ethiopia. Or perhaps even attempt to drive on it.

    Despite the fact this video is sped up, it still proves that chaos truly does reign.

    It begs the question; how does anyone know what they are doing? Is it purely just taking a gamble as to where you come out the other side?

    One thing is for certain, I’m glad we have traffic lights. Check the video below.
