iD, the 4G mobile network from Carphone Warehouse, has launched part three of their #DoYourOwnThing brand campaign. This time round, the documentary-style series tells the story of Gary Stocker – a City lawyer who risked it all to follow his dream of a life in the circus.
By swapping his six-figure salary in the city for a life in the big top, Gary Stocker is living proof that you can #DoYourOwnThing. This made him an obvious choice for iD’s inspirational brand campaign.
Gary explains: “I used to work in the City of London as a lawyer. That would have been a dream for some people, but I always had this voice in the back of my head nagging away at me saying… you know what it is you want to do.”
What Gary wanted to do more than anything else was an unusual choice of career, to say the least. But he decided to listen to the voice in his head, break from his old life, and join the circus.
Check out Gary’s full amazing story on iD's #DoYourOwnThing 'circus' page.
Fletcher Street Riding Club
The #DoYourOwnThing series kicked off with the hard-hitting tale of the Fletcher Street Riding Club, a horse-riding club in Philadelphia that provides a life away from crime for young people living in the city’s poorest neighbourhoods.
You can see how the club gives its members a chance to take control of their lives on iD's Fletcher Street Riding Club page.
iD's #DoYourOwnThing series
#DoYourOwnThing showcases and celebrates the lives of unique individuals who aren’t afraid to do things differently. They think independently and do what they believe - just like iD.

The first four films of this digital-only campaign premiered on Facebook from 25th April, and was followed by a sequence of films launched across a number of VICE’s digital channels entitled “New Originals”.
