Eurostar takes the mickey out of us Brits

Eurostar in France has created a cheeky Olympic campaign featuring Greek-style statues of what it sees as typical British athletic heroes – playing darts and snooker.

The images of classical statues featured in the ads play to French stereotypes of the beer-swilling Brit.

Nice idea, well executed and a bit controversial. Just what you would expect from Eurostar in France. We like them.

Just a shame they don't do the same in this country aimed at the french. I'm sure they'd go down well.
