Two Australian ‘crusaders without clothes’ have stripped off beside some of London’s most iconic landmarks in a project to promote indecency.
Sam Hatfield and Fiona Skelton bared all at Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
They also offered their own interpretation of the iconic image of The Beatles by strolling across the Abbey Road crossing.
The stunts are part of their ‘Nakedme’ internet project– a ‘worldwide crusade’ to ‘make indecency more acceptable’.
The London images were part of a short film they made for the project called ‘Bare Rollin’ in the Big Smoke’.
The duo, who call themselves ‘the crusaders without clothes’, said: ‘We are here to make being comfortable with indecency cool.
‘Being shameless about displays of indecency is our way of subtly challenging the shame complex that causes so many people to be embarrassed about themselves and fearful of other’s indecency.’
It is not the first time the two Australians have stri*pedoff in public.They rode a scooter across the Sydney Harbour Bridge wearing nothing but helmets,boots and gloves
They also danced unclad with commuters on the suspended railway in the picturesque German town ofWuppertal.
In a statement on their website they added: ‘By a twist of fate it has become incumbent upon us to lead this final battle for carnal freedom
‘Where others fail we will prevail, through audacity and wild abandon, for we are the successors of the revolution to storm this last bastion of Victorian cultural taboos.
‘We shall ride the winds of change, while simultaneously feeling the wind on our nether regions.
‘Because there’s one thing they didn’t count on: they can’t beat our shamelessness with shame. This is the Nakedme Show, and we are the crusaders without clothes.’
