Fun Fact #14: Man On Fire

If you’ve ever seen the album art for Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, you’ve probably come to understand why the band is as well known for their album covers as they are for their music. The artwork portrays two men in business suits, one of them on fire, shaking hands. This image is meant to represent the fear of “getting burned”. Simple enough. So what’s so crazy about this album art? Well, that man on the cover you see on fire… he was LITERALLY on fire!

During the photo shoot for the album, two stunt men were dressed in business suits. One of them however, was wearing a fire-retardant suit underneath and a fireproof wig. The first time they tried to set him on fire for the handshake, the wind was blowing in the wrong direction, and his mustache was burned right off of his face. They then switched sides and were able to get the picture. After it was shot, they simply reversed the photo, putting the man on fire back on the right side.

“We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl. Year after year, running over the same old ground. What have we found? The same old fears.”
