The UK marketing team behind the popular streaming service, Blinkbox, recently executed an eye-catching publicity stunt to celebrate the arrival of “Game of Thrones” season 3. A colossal daon skull, measuring 40 feet in length and 9 feet in height, was commissioned and placed on the famous “Jurassic Coast” in Dorset, well-known for its dinosaur fossils. This impressive feat took two months to complete and is considered one of the most memorable advertisements since HBO’s two-page ad featuring a daon shadow in the New York Times earlier this year. The creative team at Taylor Herring PR was responsible for the campaign, aiming to create the impression that the skull had washed ashore. Last month, the team unveiled a similar stunt with a 12-foot statue of Mr. Darcy from “Pride and Prejudice” emerging from London’s Serpentine to promote UKTV’s new channel, “Drama.” Visitors to Dorset’s coastal area were surprised and amazed to find a giant bus-sized skull on the beach.
This massive entity measured up to 40 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 9 feet in height.
Back in 2004, a fascinating marine animal called an ichthyosaur, resembling a dolphin, was discovered in the region. This discovery marked the first of its kind.
The Ichthyosaur is a marine animal that resembled a dolphin. It thrived in the Earth’s waters about 220 to 65 million years ago.
