Those who follow the wide world of weird may recall that this isn’t the first time Travelocity’s mascot has stalked Argentina: in 2008, according toThe Sun, a gnome was spotted and video recorded (see below). A group of lads returning from a fishing trip shrieked in horror at seeing a little guy in a pointed hat shuffled across the road. This 2008 incident happened in General Guemes just 500km/311mi from the garden statue staple’s most recent spotting.
