DIARY: What on earth would someone want with a 3ft length of rubber?

The dark wave of advertising crime continues. First, we brought you news of the theft of the Cuprinol man (who, incidentally, is still missing).

of the theft of the Cuprinol man (who, incidentally, is still missing).



Now we report on a rather more sick-in-the-head, disturbed sort of

robbery.



Banks Hoggins O’Shea has mounted two special poster sites in London to

promote the video launch of 101 Dalmatians this week by Buena Vista -

you know, the Disney dog-napping classic full of ickle fluffy pups being

all cute in the snow.



The agency, being typically imaginative, has stuck row upon row of

three-dimensional motorised wagging tails on the posters at its Vauxhall

Cross and Cromwell Road sites for extra cuteness.



But while there should, of course, be 101 tails, someone, somewhere,

thinks it’s screamingly funny to pull them off, and one poster is now

down to about 75.



‘God knows what they’re doing with them,’ Banks Hoggins’ creative

director, Chris O’Shea, says. ‘They’re three-feet-long rubbery things.’



The mind truly boggles.
