Ben 10 is up to mischief again. This time the cartoon character has left his mark on a farm near Tarlton in Gauteng.

Cartoon Network yesterday announced that the crop circle that reportedly baffled a Gauteng farmer, a pilot and a specialised company was a joint marketing campaign by Arcay Burson-Marsteller and HDI Youth Marketeers for the launch of the second season of Ben 10 Omniverse.

On Tuesday, "farmer" Rudie Fett and "pilot" Wynand Kemp said a crop circle, which resembles the cartoon character's "omnitrix" watch, sprang up overnight.

The stunt follows last year's campaign, which created a buzz around UFO sightings in Johannesburg.
