ET Toronto

E.T. roams the streets of Toronto

Have you seen a small extraterrestrial wandering the streets of Toronto constantly muttering "phone home"? No, that wasn't an acid flashback. E.T. really has been popping up all over town as part of a photo project by Cameron McLellan. Using a facsimile of the famous alien from Steven Spielberg's eponymous movie from 1982 that he received as a gift, McLellan posed E.T. in a variety of Toronto landmarks before adding them to the blogTO Flickr pool.

Seeing the iconic alien all across Toronto is both eerie and fun. It should be noted that he's also quite the fan of our public transportation system. I guess it's a bit cold to ride one's bicycle through the air right now, so the TTC is the next best thing.

Have a look at E.T.'s tour of Toronto in this photo gallery.
