Lotus Toilet Roll
"The Forest"
Toilet paper and cuddly mascots seem to go arm in arm. Andrex have their puppy; Cushelle has a CG koala; now Lotus unleash an animatronic yeti. There’s nothing abominable about this beast, though - he just needs the loo, post-haste. Well-behaved furball that he is, he waits to use the nearby facilities. Lucky his resourceful companion grabbed some loo roll beforehand, too.
