The mystery of the man being walked on a lead around London has been solved

Was it a role-playing exercise? A PR stunt? An art project?

THE MYSTERY THAT shocked and stunned England and the wider world last week has been solved – we now know why that man was being walked around London on a lead.

One of our predictions turned out to be correct – the affair was neither BDSM role-playing or a PR stunt, but it was a performance art project of sorts.

The woman in the photos has come forward and identified herself as Eden Avital Alexander, who has acted on stage for 20 years.

She told The Independent that the stunt was an acting project, and the director (who does not wish to be named) was the man on the leash. A camera followed them around to film the reactions of passers-by, and the best reactions will be made into a short film.

The actress said one person had an argument with her about human rights, while others simply asked to take a photo.

Alexander says she’s proud of the project:

I believe that artists, actors especially, should take the audience out of their normal everyday life and make them think and feel other things.
I am proud of being part of this project, even if it was just to make people laugh: we should do that more often.

Right. Everyone move along, nothing to see here…
