One particularly special idea is Paul’s hoaxing talents. He is able to walk into a board room or a conference and fool everyone with hilarious results. He researches the company and the industry and passes himself off as an industry expert, a visiting dignitary, executive or consultant. He has appeared for the AMP Society of Malaysia as a superannuation expert, in Bali for Schwarzkopf as a hair consultant and at the Sydney Entertainment Centre for Ford as a cardiologist. And just when his unsuspecting audience take the bait, Martell lets fly with a barrage of stories, anecdotes from his wide array of hoax characters.
