Pic exclusive Continuing his PR stunt battle against AOL, EasyEverything boss Stelios Haji-Ioannou parked one of two advertising lorries outside AOL's UK headquarters - and we've got the photo to prove it.

We had a go at Stelios on Monday because he'd promised us he would plonk the lorry, complete with huge 'tear up your AOL account' poster, in front of AOL's building but had failed to do so. Well, he's come good on his word.

AOL is reportedly thinking of suing EasyEverything for the advertising which suggests that because the Internet café chain will offer you a 24-hour or monthly pass to use its computers then it's a waste of time having an AOL account. Except of course with an AOL account you can access the Net at home rather than have to travel to a café, but we'll ignore that for the moment.

Anyway, here is the pic. If you look very closely, you'll see that the bloke behind the wheel isn't Stelios himself. ®
