Posters advertising ‘voodoo classes for kids’ have been plastered over a Scientology centre in London.
They proclaim the voodoo courses can help people to ‘curse friends’, ‘reanimate deceased animals’ and ‘perform blood sacrifices’.
The spoof posters are the work of Birmingham artist Foka Wolf who has blitzed London with ‘Tube dating’ and ‘baby eating competitions’ adverts.
Foka Wolf told Metro: ‘I was walking in London and saw the Scientologist shop and thought it would be funny to put one of my voodoo posters on the shop.
‘I hope I don’t get into trouble and am hoping I have not taken it all too far. A few people commented about not wanting to annoy Scientologists off and having Tom Cruise after me.
‘I’m not sure I want to piss off the Scientologists.’
But the artist need not worry because staff at the Life Improvement Centre said they were not offended.
A woman from the centre said: ‘We washed off the poster as soon as we saw it, it did not cause any offence.’
The Life Improvement Centre is open daily and says it ‘welcomes all visitors wishing an introduction to Dianetics and Scientology’.
During the recent heatwave, the artist put up ‘mobile sauna’ posters in Tube stations offering commuters to ‘sweat out a fifth of your body weight in one journey’ and ‘experience the afterlife of a sardine’.
He also created a ‘how to be a moped mugger’ advert which he put up around Camden.
In April the artist posted adverts offering ‘free penis enlargements for 4×4 drivers’ in Birmingham.
Foka Wolf always puts a number at the bottom of his spoof posters and records messages or even has a chat with the person ringing.
The artist said: ‘I started by wanting to show people that just because something is written down on something does not mean it is true, but since doing them I’ve come to the realisation that there is a section of society who are that stupid they actually believe anything they read.’
But Londoners fearing being pranked can rest easy, because the artist has now left the capital to return to Birmingham.
