AN ELLENBROOK resident is attempting to bring the community together with a bit of nostalgia from the Tom Hanks movie Castaway.
Carlos Picado created his very own ‘Wilson’ after drawing a face on a fitball and letting it loose in Ellenbrook.
Wilson, as he has been affectionately called, has already made his way around Aveley and Ellenbrook, taking selfies and being spotted having a beer and doing the shopping.
The giant PVC ball has even got his own Facebook page, Ellenbrook’s Wilson.
Another resident, Adam Lockley, said after finding the lonely silver ball across the road, he decided to take it in.
“He was alone, dirty, nameless; you could almost call him a drifter, so I decided to take him in for a brief moment for shelter, but was then convinced and persuaded by some of the locals to give Wilson the boot,” he said.
It was after Mr Lockley abandoned the silver ball that Mr Picado took the ball in, washed it, drew on his face and named it Wilson.
Wilson has now taken the community and social media by storm and has brought people in Ellenbrook together with a few laughs.
