Damian le Bas, a third year theologian from St John’s College, has appeared in an advert for mobile phone company T-Mobile after being approached by a representative for the company at an art exhibition. Damian spent 6 hours on a rooftop in East Croydon and was paid £1000 for featuring in the advert. With the money, he bought presents for his girlfriend and a hot air balloon ride. Le Bas said that he had no further plans for a modelling profession, but that he had enjoyed the job. Asked to describe the experience overall, Le Bas said “it was top joke.” Harry Kretchmer, JCR President of St John’s described Le Bas’ unconventional method of earning money as “both exciting and sensible”.ARCHIVE: 0th week MT 2005
