With the blankest of blank expressions on their faces, these mysterious figures have been popping up in the most unlikely of places.

The faceless mutants have a penchant for A-list celebrity bashes and have been spotted at Elton John's White tie ball and Harrods summer sale, opened by Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall.

With a membrane of skin stretched tightly over their eyes, noses and mouths, the alien-like figures were most recently snapped 'watching' a match perched on Murray Mount at Wimbledon.

Close inspection of the pictures rules out an alien invasion - small perforations around the eye areas of the masks allow the people beneath to see the world outside.

But nobody knows who the faceless figures, who often appear as motionless couples are, or why they are turning up at high profile events.

Theories include the possibilities that they are limelight-seeking pranksters, performance artists or that they are at the centre of a viral marketing campaign for an as-yet unknown product of forthcoming horror film.

Speculation has even arisen that the masks hide a pair of well-know faces, fed up with being harrassed by the paparazzi.

One blogger wrote on the Moue Magazine website: "They probably arenít just random people off of the street.

"If it ends up being a pair of celebrities who have had it with being photographed all of the time and are staging a protest, I vow to support every project they appear on from now on.

"Whatever their purpose, I want to join them. And I have a new Halloween costume for this year."

Saw that a bit earlier. Looks to be the beginning of a new Lotus marketing campaign. Very well done though, and rather cool.

This just make me long for a movie based on The Question.

If it's a paparazzi protest... pretty funny, considering they're still getting photographed.

I would buy one of these masks if they made them for Halloween.

Imagine how creepy Halloween would be if a LOT of people wore them.

If they made the masks, I'd totally keep the mask in a belt buckle.

Just heard about these not ten minutes ago while I was driving and channel hopped past Art Bell's show (or whoever hosts it nowadays).

Cool enough. Bit Silent Hill-ish.

If you post an article from Fox News everyone whines about the source, yet you throw it in the Daily Mail and people masterbate to it. I don't know :)

We should kill them. Anybody who can possibly stand to sit and watch Wimbeldon doesnt deserve to live.

I'm not fearful of people from other planets....unless they like Tennis....that's enough to make me think we should blow up the entire universe right now before they come down here and try to make us all give a shit about a boring sport.

Both are possible, and if it's not, then both groups are going to accept the free publicity.

For the people who missed it, this is viral marketing for Lotus. The car company.
