This kid I knew in high school got caught tagging one time and the police took him to his house and explained to his parents what had happened. After the police officers left, his dad confronted him angry and red-faced. “Do you like graffiti, Matt?” his dad asked, which already, is a really funny thing to ask your son who was JUST arrested for graffiti. “Actually,” Matt said, “I do. I think when it’s done well it can be really cool and is a legitimate art-form.” His dad exploded. “WELL, I DON’T!” His dad yelled. “I HATE THE WAY IT FUCKS UP THE WORRRRRRRRLD!” Haha. I don’t know, I just like that story. I think of it when I see graffiti, such as this graffiti on the side of the Beverly Hilton, where the Golden Globes were filmed. Did Ricky Gervais paint it? No one knows. Probably not? The guy has one million dollars and a successful showbiz career, he might have something better to do than spraypaint the side of a hotel. Then again, if there is one thing we know about celebrities, it is that they love pranks. If YOU were famous, what would YOU spraypaint on the side of the Beverly Hilton?
Winner will receive special placement in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. More meaningful than a Golden Globe, probably! (Image via TheDailyWhat.)
