The Zebit Crocs made another appearance this weekend as the floor of the Galleries shopping centre in Bristol appeared to dramatically break apart on Saturday, revealing a congregation of savage crocodiles snapping at shopper’ heels. Click to see the pictures enlarged.
The striking image of the crocodile-ridden pool that appeared outside the Lyceum, complete with broken bridge for passers-by to walk across, is the work of renowned British graffiti artists Dave and Nick, and appeared in The Galleries on Saturday to promote Zebit, a new way to finance products online and offline designed for bargain-hunting shoppers who want to make their shopping ‘snappier’.
The 3D image caused a few shoppers to stop in their tracks as they went about their Saturday shopping, with some stopping to admire the drawing, but most being keen to ‘jump in’ and have their pictures taken on the drawing – attempting to wield a shopping trolley brimming over with luxury goods over the rickety bridge. A selection of photographs of Bristol shoppers snapped with the crocs can be seen on Zebit’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/zebituk.
Zebit is designed to help grab ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ bargains often spotted in sales and on auction sites. Unlike conventional credit cards, it gives control to the customer with flexible payment terms. Zebit customers can borrow for a day, a week, or any length of time up to 7 months, and set the repayment schedule with weekly or monthly payments.

2. Decide how much they want to borrow and how and when they want to repay.
3. The funds appear on the Zebit card instantly after approval they can buy immediately.
