While many across the nation's capital were gearing up for the marathon, one man was driving a giant foot through South London.
The oddity was seen and shared on Twitter by Wandsworth Police who appealed to the public for a bit of context.
The Mirror concluded the silver shell suit-wearing driver was being reprimanded by a traffic warden, however what appeared to be a council worker on patrol was actually someone dressed as a captain.
Tweeters speculated for a while on what the purpose of the strange vehicle might be until it was revealed to be a stunt promoting the Wandsworth Arts Fringe festival which takes place in May.
