Post What to do with those empties - Mustang made from beer cans

Filed under: Contests, Etc., Euro, Ford


We'll avoid the trite jokes about Jack Kirby's Mustang sculpture being a "nice car, bud." Ouch. There, it slipped out anyway. Now we can just move on. Rather than just stack up the red, white, and blue swill cans to the ceiling, as would most college students, the art and design scholar built a car instead. Kirby's chef d'oeuvre came to be when Budweiser rolled out its UK-only "Budbucks" promotion this summer - grand prize, a 1965 Mustang, Jack's favorite car. Whether or not he wins the contest, we bet it was one heck of a good time to consume the 5,000 beers that donated their containers. Then again, being a college student, he probably drank them all in one night, alone.

Thanks to tipster Marsh

Imagine getting pulled over by the police in that one.

"Sir, were you drinking?"

for what the guy spent on beer and time to construct that car, he could have gotten a part-time job (a dirty word to today's kids) and just BOUGHT himself a '65 Mustang.
