The legendary security man guarding the main stage at Download Festival 2011 held at Donington Park, England. He had the number 0836 printed on his vest, which is how he became known as 836.
(Real name: Michael Cooke, also known as Cookie to his friends)
The man was cheered by a 30,000+ strong crowd just for being there. Chants of "836, 836" could be heard, as well as "836, show your tits!".
At some points, security number 836 was receiving more attention than world renowned bands such as Linkin Park and Bullet For My Valentine.
When he emerged from backstage with a can of energy drink, he was urged to "down it" by the crowd of fans. He was booed whenever he went backstage.
Even the cameraman at the event joined in the fun, filming 0836 so that he appeared on the giant screens either side of the stage!
He is now a celebrity and very popular on Facebook.
Hopefully headlining Download Festival in the near future.
836! Show Your Tits!
Me: I'm getting an 836 vest for next year's Download!
Friend: Yeah, well I'm getting an 836 tattoo!
