Horrible Giant Babies Urge Londoners to Bet on the Royal Infant's Hair Color

From Adweek

William and Kate's incoming royal baby has been a hot topic of conversation in England for a while now, but apparently it's also the subject of high-stakes betting. In fact, gambling website Paddy Power is still taking bets on pretty much everything about the baby's life, and dressed up four people as ugly babies to reflect the current hair-color odds as a weird and somewhat tasteless promotional tactic.
