There's nothing like using and abusing your position for a bit of
blatant self-promotion. So when Dan Hart, a sales executive at More
Group who has looked after the giant video screen at Home in Leicester
Square for the past year, decided to go off travelling, he proved to be
a typical media sales blagger by getting someone to snap him and display
the results in glorious technicolour for his adoring (ahem) crowd in the
centre of London.
Desperate Dan's ego was apparently swollen to gargantuan proportions -
well, 67 square metres, to be precise.
Quite what all those bemused tourists thought this outsized joker was
doing grimacing down at them as they went about their business is
So, not very self-conscious at all, then. But it is nice to see those
media stereotypes being reinforced all by themselves.
