Celebrity Eggs For Charity

Thornton's have come up trumps again with egg-cellent Easter PR Story.

They have created five Easter eggs bearing the faces of Gordon Brown, Victoria Beckham, David Beckham, Lily Allen and Prince Harry. These people were chosen as they "represent a spectrum of British culture." Yeah, yeah but we are just talking about chocolate eggs with famous people's faces on here, folks!

They did however get some pretty awesome people to do their eggs as it were:

Giving the whole chocolate thing street cred they worked with design duo Id-Iom, best known for their graffiti-style art.
Designer Henry Holland decorated an egg using his trademark colours
Tattooist Louis Molloy did a swallows and bluebirds tattoo design
Patissier Eric Lanlard made an egg lavishly decorated with gold leaf and sugar crystal pieces.

Predictably E Bay is involved (YAWN) and the eggs will be auctioned for charity. Quite why anyone would want to eat Gordon Brown's face is beyond me though.
