Why is there an animated Smurf at the bottom of the page in AIBU?

There's no text, just a Smurf doing one-handed push-ups. confused

I just noticed that too. Very strange.

Advertising. New smurf film out soon.

I quite like it. Far better than the lovehoney ad at the top!

Smurfs are very unreasonable

One handed push ups are also very unreasonable

There's one on the active page as well, trying to kick a ball.

Hello!

Well...

If you click on the lovely little smurf then it will take you to a competition we're running. You need to mention the URL of where you found the smurf and what not, but that's what it is! grin

I don't see a smurf! I want a smurf sad

Maudlinmaud Mon 06-Mar-17 15:26:30

Yes I saw him too! I honestly thought I was hallucinating ...again

DevelopingDetritus Mon 06-Mar-17 15:32:57

Entered comp grin

Maudlinmaud Mon 06-Mar-17 15:35:51

How do you put or find the url. I am incompetent. If a licence was needed for using the internet I wouldn't be allowed one blush

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 06-Mar-17 15:40:02

Don't worry Maudlinmaud. Today is all about 'java' and I keep seeing 'jaffa' and then I want cake.

When you see the blue smurf, click him. A new tab will open and you can enter the comp. Go back to the page you found the smurf on and copy and paste the link into the box where it asks!

Maudlinmaud Mon 06-Mar-17 15:47:09

Thanks Lorna. Mmmm cake
I will wait until youngest dc comes in, she will know about the copy and paste thing plus Smurfs.

I wonder how many times you can enter, I've done it twice ATM, the football one and the push up one.

HesterLee Tue 07-Mar-17 10:28:36

I just clicked a Smurf but got an error link sad

DevelopingDetritus Tue 07-Mar-17 12:03:59

Yeah, looks like a fault, hopefully it's up and running later.

2014newme Tue 07-Mar-17 12:07:51

Irritating

KatherineMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 07-Mar-17 14:01:01

Hallo,

Yes - that's a fault, apologies! We've raised with tech, so should be fixed a-sap.

QueenMortificado Tue 07-Mar-17 21:55:08

God these are so fucking annoying. I can see it moving around when I'm trying to type a message on my phone.

I have zero interest in arsing around with smurfs. Can't they be positioned so you can't see them when typing a message on your phone?

Found this thread as I was about to post the same question about the smurf. Thought something had gone very strange.
I do seem to spend most of my time on MN hanging out in "site stuff" now, which is a bit sad!

ItsNachoCheese Wed 08-Mar-17 20:42:02

My smurf is attempting albeit poorly to kick a football 😂

PinkBuffalo Wed 08-Mar-17 20:43:46

Ooh yes, my smurf is a football one too, not press ups.
