Faceless People Invade UK! [warning, creepy pic]

Quote:
On the face of it, there's something very strange going on...

These people and their blank expressions have caused a real stir.

Their visits included Elton John's ball and the Harrods summer sale, with one photographer saying: "It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen."

They use a membrane of artificial skin with tiny holes over the eyes so they can see. Theories include them being part of an ad campaign, artists or celebs sick of the paparazzi.

Whoa, I would be totally freaked out if I saw something like that!

I think its part of promotion for a movie, because these "faces" are appearing at major public events, like Wimbledon.

Is there anyone here from London? How do our British Interferencers feel about this?

It's like those creepy kids in The Wall or Jacob's Ladder.

Reminds me of the alien rebels in the X-Files who sealed their facial orifices shut to avoid being infected by the Black Oil.

Creepy.

It's obviously Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow guys!!!

C'mon, isn't it obvious?

Case closed.

I think it would be pretty sweet if someone pulled out a gun on these creeps and shot them (in the leg of course). i mean, seriously, the shooter would have a great defense: "i was certain these 'things' were going to probe me and/or suck out my brain!"

I'm in the UK and never heard of this. I'm guessing they're promoting something.

I think it's for a car ad campaign.

I'm not British (at least not until my application has been approved), I haven't heard anything about it, and I wouldn't really care if they were appearing all over Norwich. I doubt I would even notice.

Not to place much importance on this, but, how could you not notice that?

Creepy.
It is sort of creepy. Was there a large XFiles fandom in the UK?
I don't know.
