Comical images show TV’s Mr Blobby appearing to spy on a naked woman while she is in the bath following a billboard mishap.
Residents have been left in stitches after high winds from Storm Hannah partially brought down a section of the giant poster in Leicester city centre.
The BT advert shows a woman watching a tablet computer while relaxing and having a soak in the bath.
But workmen have clearly papered over the previous display as a partially torn section of the billboard reveals a beaming Mr Blobby beneath.
It appears to show the iconic nineties character gatecrashing in typical ‘Blobby-style’ while staring at the woman with a large grin on his face.
One commuter captured the comical scene on his mobile phone as he returned home from work and uploaded the footage online, where it has gone viral.
The 33-year-old musician, from Leicester, who did not want to be named, said: “I was on the way back from Loughborough on the bus when I was suddenly quite taken aback.
“The usual creepy BT advert had a vibrant pink interloper – staring in the window at a woman in the bath was none other than Mr Blobby.
“I thought it was intentional at first, as it was too perfect, but then I realised the flapping tear of paper. The wind had peeled it back.
“I decided to take a photo as it made me laugh, I got a lot of weird looks as I was there a while.”
The web user posted the footage on Twitter with the caption ‘The most perfect thing to happen in Leicester’.
The video has been retweeted over 10,000 times and liked more than 36,000 times since it was uploaded on Friday.
He even got a reply from BT, who wrote back to him from their official account with a tongue-in-cheek letter to pass on.
They said: “Dear Mr Blobby.
“It’s BT here, the telecommunications company.
“We just want to say thank you for popping by, its always a pleasure.
“We do, however, have a favour to ask. Last night in true ‘blobby, blobby, blobby’ fashion, you decided to crash in to one of our adverts.
“The thing is, we’re just trying to keep people connected with wi-fi in every room of their house.
“We know, its pretty neat with BT you can watch TV in rooms you wouldn’t usually be able to and we’re honoured you stopped by, but there’s no need for this behaviour.
“So, consider our plea, leave our adverts alone
“Many thanks, BT.”
