Birds Eye celebrate National Fish Fingers & Custard Day


Tomorrow in the UK (Wednesday 3rd April) sees the launch of "National Fish Fingers and Custard Day" - a nod to the Eleventh Doctor's discovery of the delicacy in the 2010 episode, The Eleventh Hour. Food manufacturers Birds Eye have produced a bespoke pack of fish fingers just for Matt Smith - replacing their Captain Birds Eye with The Doctor. Click on the pics for bigger versions and check out the press release below:

"Special edition fish fingers, with Captain Birdseye stepping aside for Dr Who, have been created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the hit TV show and mark the launch of National Fish Fingers and Custard Day (Wednesday 3rd April) the favourite food of the eleventh incarnation of the doctor.

The bespoke pack featuring the Doctor has been sent to Matt Smith, the eleventh incarnation of the famous character, along with a year's supply of Birds Eye Fish Fingers."

Please note: these won't be available in stores. (And it's not a late April Fool either!)

Well I'm sure Matt will be delighted to wake up to a year's supply of fish fingers at his door!

What use is a free year's supply of fish fingers without the equivalent amount in custard?!

I wonder how much they think is a year's supply and how much that differs from Matt's opinion.

Someday maybe people will learn that you can't horizontally flip a picture of Matt Smith because his hair gives it away...

I wish they would sell this. Also, I wish I knew how how to make proper custard.

I just have to inform you, it's not the National Fish Fingers & Custard Day, it's the Intergalactic Fish Fingers & Custard day. Or at least the international one... ;-)
