Britain's 'incoming' royal baby to Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton has been a 'hot' topic as of late.

Paddy Power, an online gambling company, has taken the hype a little further by launching 'outdoor' advertisements that encourage people to bet on what hair color the royal baby will have.

Four grown men dressed up as rather ugly-looking large babies walked all around town—in the crowded London Tube and on the public streets. They also made sure to stop by the Buckingham Palace.

According to a Paddy Power spokesperson, Britain may soon be welcoming "Princess Alexandra, born on the 17th of July with brown hair weighing in at 7lbs."

Moreover, the current hair color odds are as follows: "Ginger 7/1, Brunette 6/4, Black 2/1 and Blonde 7/2."

What do you think about the ad in general? Humorous? Or down right tasteless? You can decide after you view the images that follow:
