Comedian Joe Lycett stages stunt outside Shell HQ in London



Joe Lycett staged a stunt outside Shell’s HQ in London to campaign against the company’s “greenwashing”.

The comedian, 33, arrived outside the offices in a yellow bus painted with a mural of a mock Shell advert featuring the caption “We’re turning our carbon emissions green for earth day”.

He and several dancers then performed a routine that culminated in Lycett being sprayed with grey paint to represent oil.

A parody television advert starring Lycett was then shown outside the firm’s HQ.

The stunt was filmed as part of a Rumpus Media documentary called Joe Lycett vs The Oil Giant, which looks at the energy company, its marketing and its exploration for new oil reserves.

The documentary will be aired by Channel 4 ahead of the Cop26 climate change summit in Glasgow later this month.
