IT Crowd and Crystal Maze star Richard Ayoade has been enjoying a few days of sunshine on the Isle of Wight – but couldn’t leave without saying something about Wightlink’s ‘bin’.
The comedian took to Twitter late yesterday afternoon to post a photo of a yellow bin at Wightlink’s Fishbourne terminal which has a notice on it saying “this is not a bin” – despite its appearance as one. Ayoade captioned the photo “After Magritte” – thought to be in reference to the surrealist artwork, This is Not an Apple, which was created by Rene Magritte in 1964.
Wightlink saw the funny side of the tweet and replied “we empower our bins to write their own story”.
Richard was spotted in Tesco on Saturday afternoon and is thought to have left the Island yesterday evening (Wednesday). It’s unknown where he has been staying during his time on the garden Isle though, however, he is known to frequent Seaview and was last seen there back in April.
