Kraken Advert - Train8261 - 07 Oct 2021

Bit of a strange one here

Does anyone know what the Kraken Advert is for https://flic.kr/p/2myj4vN

It's on two Arriva buses in Newcastle 
It's on two First Glasgow buses https://flic.kr/p/2mxDFiB

It's on one bus on First Bristol https://flic.kr/p/2mwq4r2

And it's on 3 buses on Lothian buses in Edinburgh https://flic.kr/p/2msUes8

Any idea what the advert is for

Ah thanks. It may be controversial what I'm about to say but.

I like this advert. Don't know why but it makes the bus look really smart

I got a shot of Lothian Buses 424 (BN64 CSY) with this striking advert on Monday - https://www.flickr.com/photos/adammalarkey/51563326830/in/dateposted-public/

Would love to see this over the top of the X-Lines Spares Livery.

London too. 
But it does actually tell you on the buses what the product actually is.
Big writing, just above the driver Wink

MG will be having a panic attack at the fact you've even suggested such a thing!

But it would look stunning though and potentially top Lothian's effort, I believe the wrap applied has no impact on the paintwork due to the type of wrap it is.

I was talking more about there being a slither of vinyl on the windows!

You can still see the Kraken views the North East has to offer through the windows though  Tongue

How can you think it makes the bus look ‘smart’, it’s aimed to look the exact opposite of that.  Big Grin

(I’m not saying I dislike it btw, I think it’s very cleverly done. It sure is a head-turner which is what you want for an advert).

I think it looks a lot more effective on Lothian’s livery than it does Arriva NE’s, probably because Lothian has the white base for it to contrast against.
