Branded pigeons invade Wimbledon

Game maker Acclaim hopes the answer is an emphatic, “yes”. It plans to invade this week’s Wimbledon championship with twenty Virtua Tennis 2 branded birds, the BBC reports. The homing pigeons will fly down during pre-match warmups, sporting spray-painted logos, and then return to a secret location in south west London.

Acclaim officials assured the BBC that no harm would come to the birds. The flying rats will merely be coated in a water-based paint.

Certainly original thinking here…and perhaps(?) a bit more classy than the naked streakers used by Golden Palace Casino, but not as fun…
