With his new Playboy Club about to open in London's exclusive Park Lane, Hugh Hefner clearly wants his business venture to begin with a bang.
But a club in classy Mayfair, replete with gambling rooms and scantily-dressed women in bunny outfits is clearly not enough of an impact for him.
The 85-year-old Playboy mogul definitely turned heads on his arrival to England, as he touched down at Stansted Airport with ten of his Playboy Bunnies clutching each other - with Mr Hefner in the middle, obviously.

The group of girls - or perhaps that should be a colony of bunnies - looked stunning as they linked arms and tottered alongside the millionaire in their skyscraper heels.
Mr Hefner had left the smoking jacket at home and had donned a pilot's cap and a bright orange shirt for the occasion.
Perhaps to show just what sort of variety his club will offer, Mr Hefner had selected a diverse range of beautiful girls, with redheads, blondes and brunettes parading up and down the runway.
Despite the wind and unglamourous surroundings of the tarmac, the girls all sported wide smiles and helped each other keep hold of their tails.
For those interested (and with enough cash) the new club, which brands itself an 'adult's playground' has enough to turn even the most sensible head.
According to its website, it boasts gaming rooms dedicated to a an 'exciting contemporary casino', roulette machines, poker games and slot machines.

Visitors can visit the Cottontail Lounge, which is designed for the 'louche and mysterious' who will be waited on by the beautiful cocktail waitresses - all dressed in their obligatory costume of bunny ears, cuffs and collars, revealing bodysuits and high heels.
They can also wander around a restaurant, barbershop and terrace.
The club is due to open on June 4 - much to the anger of feminist groups who claim the opening is demeaning to women.
The launch of the Mayfair venue comes 30 years after the closure of the original 45 Park Lane club that was popular with celebrities.
It closed in 1981 when its gaming licences were revoked.
