Cityboy goes Glasto

04 July 2008  |  3215 views  |  1

Cityboy, Beer and loathing in the Square Mile, is a fictionalised account of rampant egotism, greed, prostitution and drug-taking in the heart of London's financial centre. The lurid tome was penned by Geraint Anderson, a former utilities research analyst at DrKW, who grew tired of the City's excesses after a debauched ten year's at the sharp end.

Having hung up his bowler hat for good, the Square Mile's self-proclaimed whistleblower has now embarked on a mammoth promotional tour which last week took him to annual rock-fest Glastonbury of all places. The subsequent culture clash was filmed for posterity and posted on YouTube.

Warning: This video contains scenes of nudity and flagrant self-abasement that viewers of a sensitive nature might find disturbing.
