One day, late last year, I was driving in the city and I saw Wally walking in the street. I'm not even kidding. I'm not talking about Wally Lewis (I wouldn't recognise him if I ran him over in my car) or Wally Smith (who may or may not exist, I can't actually think of anyone else called Wally). It was Wally. As in Where's Wally. Walking down the road.
I tried to get a picture of Wally on my iPhone, but stopped when I remembered that it was illegal to use an iPhone whilst driving*. So sadly I don't have any photographic evidence, but I can assure you it was him. I can also assure you that he wasn't just a random guy in blue pants and a stripey red-and-white top - he had the stripey red-and-white hat to match, and if you can find one man in the universe who would wear that who is not Wally, then I'll show you a flying baboon**.
I searched the internet to no avail, and then took to Twitter to ask if anybody knew why Wally was walking around the streets of Sydney. No-one did. In fact, one or two people surmised that perhaps I'd been imagining things, and reiterated the dangers of driving whilst under the influence of Wally-sighting-inducing drugs.
So I let it all go, and pretty much forgot the whole incident.
You see, Wally is suddenly back in my life.
As you may know, it is Wally's 25th anniversary***. And in honour of that anniversary, I have a magnificent prize pack to give away.
The pack consists of:
- 1 x Adult 'Where's Wally' costume
- 1 x Adult 'Where's Wally' Wenda costume
- 1 x 25th Anniversary 'Where's Wally' Hardcopy collectors edition book
- 1 x Where's Wally desktop standee
Total value $110.
To enter, please leave your comment below (or on Facebook) explaining why you want a Where's Wally costume. Because a) I need some way to choose a winner. And b) I really want to know. Why on earth do you want a Where's Wally costume???
The winner will be announced on this blog.
*although it may also have had something to do with the fact that I couldn't find it in my bag in time to capture him.
**this is metaphorical. I don't really have a flying baboon to show you. I don't actually think they exist.
***not wedding anniversary. I don't think he's married. Would you marry someone who wears that outfit???
This is not a sponsored post. I just like Wally.
