If you find yourself in London town today, there’s one of those flashmob thingies happening that might be of interest. You won’t have to stand still like a statue, but you may get to meet the acting legend that is Brian Blessed!
The event is to celebrate the success of a Facebook campaign to get Brian Blessed’s voice onto TomTom satnavs, with victorious fans dressing up as Blessed and celebrating the spoils of their victory with the man himself.
To take part you’ll need to be at Bar Soho on Old Compton Street from 5:30pm tonight.
“If you don’t look like Brian, fear not – TomTom will be supplying masks to get us all looking the part and will be on hand to take our photos with him,” says Nik Hewitt on the official Facebook Group.
“If you know anyone who actually does look like Brian Blessed, please get them to come along too – there seems to be a distinct lack of professional lookalikes out there.”
