Eidos, the company behind Tomb Raider, killed off its real-life Lara Croft spokesgirls. They'll "never happen again", said Eidos. In Finland, they live on.
According to Finish tabloid Iltalehti, the 2012 Miss Finland candidates were rounded up, dressed in Lara Croft-inspired gear, and taken out to the arctic circle for a few "Lara Croft themed photos".
It was minus 25 degrees! But there the Miss Finland candidates were, doing high-kicks, crouching on snowmobiles, and wearing hot pants.
