A long spacewalk on a short pier

Finding the account manager dressed in silver wellies may not be an everyday occurrence for most of us, but that was what faced employees of brand agency iD recently.

Looking like a cross between Ziggy Stardust and Compo from Last of the Summer Wine, Andy Franks dressed up as a “spaceman” and leapt off a pier for charity (not that the Diary recalls Neil Armstrong taking one giant leap dressed in a wetsuit and moped helmet).

“The drop looked huge,” says Andy, although it’s not clear whether he was talking about the pier or his career prospects once this picture is circulated.

Still, tinfoil titfers off to Andy for raising money for a good cause and risking his limbs in the process. Let’s just hope for the sake of the iD staff that he doesn’t develop a thing for the suit.
