Flack

1. It's a sad sight - a once proud man reduced to this dishevelled appearance as a result of hard luck and bad decisions. But it turns out this is CIPR president Kevin Taylor, preparing himself for Byte Night - the IT industry's annual night of sleeping rough in support of Action for Children. Brands2Life's co-founder Giles Fraser is also taking part in the event, on 2 October.

2. Yes, it is a skateboarding chicken. And who said ridiculous PR stunts were a thing of the past? Underneath the silly outfit is Pretty Green creative consultant Hamish Duncan, promoting the 'Xperimental Skate Jam' for Nando's, aimed at getting young people into the sport. We wonder if it will work?

3. If freewheeling poultry isn't enough to convince you that the recession is over, how about a life-size table football match, developed by Synergy PR for client Betfair in Manchester, and refereed by bemused Man United legend Alex Stepney? After a few players failed a late fitness test, Synergy account manager Caroline Ayling had to step in at left midfield.
