MERCENARIES 2: WORLD IN FLAMES - PETROL FOR THE PEOPLE

‘Mercenaries’ from Electronic Arts are hijacking a London petrol station this morning and giving away£20,000 of FREE petrol to customers.

The entire forecourt of Last Stop Ltd near Finsbury Park, North London will be completely transformed into that of a military style bunker, with jeeps, oil barrels, sandbag walls, and fully costumed actors on hand to pump the petrol for the customers.

The stunt is taking place to celebrate the launch of new videogame Mercenaries 2: World in Flames out today on Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PC:DVD. The activity mirrors that of the game, which features a mercenary soldier taking possession of the local oil supply.

The full address of petrol station is - Last Stop Ltd, 73, Stapleton Hall Rd, London, N4 3QF
