Royal De Luxe Hits London!

40 Foot elephant roams London today...The Royal De Luxe troupe are at it again...in London!

Is it a robot? A Computer? A Puppet? It's all of those things. Myself, I rather like thinking of it in old terms, as an automaton - a very complex automaton, but one nonetheless.

The BBC says the elephant sleeps, eats, sprays water on crowds, and trumpets...

Wouldn't the Victorians have loved this!
