Gold painted post box in Kew

Why Is The Post Box In Kew Village Now Gold?

The post box in Kew is now gold – how, what, when, why?

Does anyone know the answer?

I spotted it today and can only find two other tweets about it.

Is this post box with the Midas touch part of a quirky ad campaign? Has the Royal Mail changed its brand identity overnight? Is it an post-riot statement of defiance by the dinner party classes of Kew?

Maybe it’s a publicity stunt? Could something viral about to take Surrey, or even the world, by storm, as in the recent ‘Greatest Marriage Proposal Ever’ which seems to have now disappeared completely (did she break off the engagement after all the silver screen activity proved too much?). Whatever the reason, it’s been beautifully done.
