A stolen cardboard cutout of actor and comedian Pétur Jóhann Sigfússon has been taken on a Facebook adventure, reports DV.

The cutout of Pétur, who is best known internationally for co-writing and starring in Næturvaktin alongside Jón Gnarr, was stolen from Hagkaup supermarket in Reykjanesbær.

Since then cardboard Pétur – or Pappír Pési (Paper Pete) as the cutout is referred to in the media – has been to the tanning salon, worked at a kiosk in Grindavík, and checked out a farm.

Paper Pete’s extensive adventures over the past few days have been documented on a Facebook page though the police say they believe they have tracked down the thieves so Paper Pete’s adventures might be numbered.
