I'm assuming that someone bought it as a parts car.

Does Rolex make a big dial? 40mm isn't really all that big, compared to some I've seen.

It's be kinda cool to find a late 40s or early 50s sedan body to drop on the Maybach gear...or an old panel van or woody wagon.

Just wanted to say that's an awesome song, and I love the video just for the Aziz Ansari cameo:

Otis Redding has a video out? And he's wearing Margaux Hemingway's jacket in it? And driving this?

That Tauba Auerbach painting they mentioned? Complete nonsense. She's a conman, but somehow the rich art world loves her right now. Here it is, honestly, someone paid that much for some black squares:

I don't mind Jay-Z and Kanye ripping tracks from a bunch of old white guys, but leave Otis alone.
The golden rule of cover songs is to never cover a song by an artist with more talent than you.

Otis live with Booker T and the MGs (new window)

I wouldn't have paid the $60,000 for it. It's farked up to be damned with all that shiat welded onto it.

The sad part is that if that's the entire piece, she squandered a great opportunity to write something in there. That's a 16x13 grid, which gives her 26 characters to write in. Unless there's some weird order that she's arranged the tiles in, and it actually does say something in ASCII.

It's the alphabet. Black squares are 1 and white squares are 0.

Wait, who needs rollies? *checks jacket pulls out zig-zags and a lighter* Aw you meant Rolex! My bad man...

I think what they've proved is that an art auction is the wrong venue to sell a car used in a music video.

/would honestly like to know what the story behind the car was originally, as there's no way anyone's butchering a $375K car for a music video.
//Though the producer of James Bond once ordered his Rolls Royce driven into a lake.

That's what I was wondering, I'd never even heard of this Otis before, does he really have that kind of money to throw away?
