Bizarre photo of life size elephant and tiger statues on back of trailer

Eerily life-like statues of an elephant and sabre-tooth tiger on the back of a trailer driving along the West Gate Freeway have been revealed as nothing more than a publicity stunt!

3AW Mornings listener ‘Ziggy’ captured the bizarre photo and sent it into Neil Mitchell.

He momentarily thought the elephant was real.

‘I had to do a double-take when I saw it,’ he confessed.

It didn’t take long for Mark, owner of Geelong’s D?cor Impact, to claim responsibility for the statues.

And they were on the road for one simple reason.

‘It’s basically to get our name out there,’ he said.

‘When you’ve got something like this, you want people to see it.’
