Golden goal for SOS

When ordering your next set of brochures from Search Office Space (SOS )check the covers carefully, one might have the autograph of Edson Arantes do Nascimento, that’s Pele to the rest of us.

SOS videographer Gavin Alexander was filming the Olympic torch run with Pele when he suddenly got the idea to have the great man sign the SOS brochure cover. Always happy to oblige, and well used to such requests, Pele whipped out his pen and duly attached his signature.

The brochure was returned to the SOS HQ where it now occupies pride of place in the office. “As one of the greatest footballers of all time we were naturally delighted that Pele gave us his signature, “ explains Chief Operating Office Jon Posener. ”Both SOS and Pele are leaders in their respective fields.”

Whether this will mark the beginning of the SOS autograph collection or whether the Pele experience is a one-off is still be decided.
