ECB has taken to painting crickets (the insect) to promote T20 cricket (the game). Liam Brickhill reports:

Following their photoshoot, the logoed crickets were re-released back into the wild outside the stadium of their representative team. The organisers of the stunt hope children and adults will find the brightly-coloured insects – presumably before any birds or insectivorous mammals spot them – and ultimately get behind their county.

Good luck, crickets. I’m sure being brightly-colored makes it easier to avoid cricket-eating creatures.
