Mr. Darcy Emerges From Lake And Into My Nightmares

UKTV has bestowed upon us something that cannot be unseen.

These days, it isn't unusual for a company to engage in non-traditional forms of marketing to promote a new product.

Example of cool marketing done by Ad Agency Marcel to let people know about Coca-Cola's new grip bottle.

UKTV wanted to do the same to promote their new TV channel, Drama, but it just didn't turn out right...

Yup...Your eyes do not deceive. That is a creepy 12-foot-tall Mr. Darcy poppin' outta the Serpentine Lake at Hyde Park in London.

It. Is. Very. Real.

Creepy!Darcy will continue to haunt your darkest nightmares as he makes stops all over the UK before settling in Lyme Park, Cheshire where the scene from the 1995 TV miniseries was filmed. But this got me thinking--something so disturbing must have been lurking around for a while. Where else could he have been poppin' up?
