Random graffiti

Driving from Brighton to London, I ended up sat behind this truck with the words "Alan Partridge" smeared in the grime.

A few things occured about this; firstly, it's really high up - so the person must have decided to either climb a ladder or another vehicle in order to make the name stand out. And secondly... why? Were they actually called Alan Partridge and just wanted to add a kind of "... woz 'ere" type thing? Or were they fans of Alan Partridge and felt the best way of expressing their admiration was via the gift of dirt graffiti?

I really wish I knew.
