We asked our brand marketing strategist, Adam Snape, a few weird and wonderful questions to get to know him a little better.
What's the one thing you can't live without?
Headphones probably, and my Spotify playlists.
Would you rather cry glue or sneeze marbles?
Sneeze marbles. You’d know why if you’d ever glued your eye shut.
How did you first start working in digital?
I started as an apprentice at an agency because I didn’t want to go to university. I didn’t have any idea about online marketing at the time and am surprised I got offered the job but ended up staying there for nine years.
What is your favourite thing about working in digital?
Getting to dig through massive sets of data looking for an interesting story to tell. Seeing something you’ve created featured in the national press is a pretty good feeling too.
If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
It would probably have to be some sort of lizard or I’d be allergic to myself.
If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have and what would be your superhero name?
That’s a big question… It would either be close range teleportation, like Nightcrawler, or typical Spider-Man powers without the famous Parker luck.
I’d want my superhero name to be a symbol, like when Prince changed his name. Maybe ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Whatever happened to brunch? Why is it not very popular anymore?
I don’t know what you mean? Brunch has never been as popular as it is now.
Where do pigs come from?
Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?
I can wiggle my ears, move my eyes independently and blow bubbles off my tongue but I don’t know if any of them are talents.
I also went to clown school for about a six months and can ride a unicycle.
What nicknames do you have?
Thankfully, I don’t have any.
Why do birds suddenly appear?
I don’t know, it just keeps happening to me. My girlfriend legitimately has me saved as the bird emoji in her phone.
What's the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you?
I fell in a river once while showing off in front of a girl.
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, what does your milkshake bring to the table?
A vegan alternative.
Where did you grow up, and why?
Preston and… bad luck, I guess?
Tell us a surprising secret about yourself
I don’t know if I have any left…
What was the last book you read?
Retrograde Orbit, a comic by really great Leeds based creator, Kristyna Baczynski
It’s a story about second generation immigrants but also aliens and spaceships.
