Hermanos Burgers take the billboard game to the next level

Hermanos Burgers take the billboard game to the next level
Apr 5 2022 Share

Known for their guerrilla marketing and mouth-watering massive burgers, Hermanos Burgers have also went the extra mile with their billboards. 

Capturing the attention of many as they made their way on the island’s roads, the billboards captured the true essence of the brand and reminded us why we love their sandwiches.

One billboard saw Hermanos listed second in what they deemed to be the ‘Top 5 Addictions in Malta’. The burger eatery placed second only to PornHub, but above Eurovision, TikTok and Politics. 

Another billboard essentially compared burger sizes, placing a multi-layered Hermanos burger alongside a normal burger. Opening in 2020, Hermanos quickly took over the burger scene in Malta.

Known for their huge burger servings, the outlets are currently situated in four spots in Malta; Paola, Birkirkara, Mellieha and Paceville. 

And if somehow you’ve been living under a rock and never headed off to one of their outlets, these billboards might just spark your interest to try out their menu of delicious burgers and snacks.

A 28-year-old man who was arraigned under arrest after being accused of beating his pregnant partner with a broom handle has pleased not guilty. 

The man, a 28-year-old from Bormla, committed the act at the victim’s home in Valletta, with the defence alleging that the man had been attacked with a pair of scissors. 

The man, whose name is subject to a court imposed reporting ban, appeared before magistrate Gabriella Vella this afternoon. He was accused of attempted grievous bodily harm, causing slight injury and attacking his partner with whom he is expecting a child. 

The police had been called to the scene by bystanders on 3rd April, after the woman was seen running out of her home, screaming and bleeding from a head wound. The man was taken into custody, where he had told the police he had acted in self defence as the woman attacked him with a pair of scissors during an argument. 

The accused had also suffered slight injuries, with the couple already being parents to other children. A plea of not guilty on behalf of the accused was issued, as well as a request for bail. The prosecution objected due to the risk of the accused tampering with evidence. 

The inspector said the parties were still in communication, pointing out that the defendant was also accused of breaching previous bail conditions. The bail was request was later upheld, releasing the man from arrest on the condition that he does not contact prosecution witnesses. 

He was also asked to sign a bail book three times a week and that he resides with his mother, who took witness stand to confirm her address in Bormla. The accused was forbidden from entering the street in Valletta where his partner resides. Bail was secured by a €1,000 deposit together with a personal guarantee of €5,000. A protection order in favour of the woman was also imposed.

Woman spends $50,000 to clone her late dog three times

Woman spends $50,000 to clone her late dog three times

A woman has spent upwards of $50,000 to clone her late dog, becoming one of the now growing number of pet owners investing in identical versions of animals.

Francesca Geertsma, who hails from Florida, was left ‘devastated’ after her dog Osa passed away from canine cognitive disorder in 2019.

Unable to let the dog go, she contacted a company which specialises in pet cloning. Just 18 months later, she was presented with three genetically identical clones of Osa. 

The dogs were grown from cells taken from behind the ear of her original dog before her death. Francesca said that due to Osa being a mutt of five different breeds she knew it would be hard to find another similar dog. 

Now, she is happily living with three genetic clones of her dog, Osana, Osaki and Osani. According to the BBC, pet cloning has been growing in popularity.

The company contacted by Francesca reported that it has cloned hundreds of pets for clients since it opened in 2015. The process is expensive however, costing from $30,000 for a cat and even $85,000 for a horse.

It is also somewhat controversial, with animal rights activists saying that cloned animals are more susceptible to disease with an average success rate of only around 20%. Some also highlighted how thousands of animals are in shelters around the world, urging people to adopt pets from these sanctuaries.
