MARKS and Spencer customers have been left horrified after the retailer shared a throwback video of Percy Pig – before he had a “glow up”.
Customers have said they will be having nightmares after the supermarket posted a clip yesterday showing before and after shots of the porky mascot.
A TikTok video shows the much-loved pig as a costume from when he was first launched in 1992 – looking rough and disheveled.
Percy Pig’s eyes are shown looking in different directions as he appears like he has seen better days.
The footage, captioned “This isn’t just any glow up…”, was teamed up with shots of Percy Pig as he looks today – looking rosy and polished.
M&S fans were left horrified with the unearthed picture of Percy Pig before his glow up.
