As the photograph above shows, and as regular visitors here are already aware, Third Man keeps a weather eye on comings and goings at the ECB’s National Cricket Performance Centre on the campus of Loughborough University.
He’s recently noticed a strange camper bus coming and going most days. As you can see it’s weirdly psychedelic and visually challenging. Out of shot and in big star bangled letters are painted the words ‘Gus the Marvellous Magician’.
Now, two things are odd about this. First, the very same van is often to be seen parked outside Loughborough’s Psychology Department.
And secondly, as this photograph taken from the starboard porthole of the Mark III Time Machine PROVES there is one exactly similar outside Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence.
What’s going on …?
