He kept us entertained/frustrated for hours when we were younger and now Where’s Wally is being celebrated right here in London town as part of his 25th Birthday celebrations.
Personally we celebrated our 25th birthdays by downing so many gins we forgot what we were out for but Wally has a bit more class. In honour of the big occasion the London Eye was lit red last night and all of today big screens in Piccadilly have been playing out a special birthday message for our lost, bobble hat wearing pal.
First published in 1987 Wally has become an internationally known figure having been published in no less than 38 countries selling 58 million copies. It’s tiresome work hiding from that many people so if you’re passing through Piccadilly tonight make sure you raise a glass to him.
Happy Birthday Wally!
