Kellogg’s new publicity stunt has seen its ‘breakfast team’ take over London Underground.

The breakfast team have taken ‘fridges’ onto the tube, holding everything from milk and cereal to utensils such as cutlery and bowls.

However, to unsuspecting commuters the fridge looks like a normal suitcase - until of course, it’s opened mid-journey.

This campaign is targeted at the ‘busy workers’ who are skipping breakfast all together.

A Kellogg’s spokesperson said: “With almost 1 in 3 adults missing breakfast every day, we wanted to show that even for people with the busiest lifestyles, there’s always time for a bowl of Special K cereal.”

Watch the unsuspecting commuters below and tell us what you think.

A Turkish architecture studio has unveiled a unique public installation outside London's Royal Academy of Arts.

SO? Architecture and Ideas has created The Unexpected Hill, which will host performances and activities until Sunday 20th September.

A response to the Royal Academy’s 'transformation' theme, the installation consists of blue and white ceramic triangular prisms stacked and staggered to create a 3D public seating area for visitors.

The studio was inspired by ‘Muqarnas’, a design technique typically found in Islamic architecture, which co-founder Sevince Bayrak described as 'an example of using geometry to convert a 2D object into a 3D space'.
