I don’t have much time for marketing stunts, but the Wesker and Son pop-up butchers at London’s Smithfield Market piqued my interest. Organised by the publishers of the upcoming Resident Evil 6 video game, Wesker and Son sells meat made to look like human body parts. I managed to sneak in without revealing my identity and managed to get a look around. Sadly the man on duty wasn’t actually a butcher so he wasn’t able to tell me much about the pork used. Still, Wesker and Son is nothing if not a giggle and is open Friday 28th and Saturday 29th September from 09.00 to 18.00.


More pictures here.

The event is finished now but I thought it was pretty neat and didn't see it posted on the forums

The only thing the Resident Evil brand is still good for: advertising....

That's cool. More businesses need advertising like that.

I know its not real body parts, but just looking at a life like body part and then eating it is enough to turn my stomach.
