I’ve been invited to defend the indefensible

Damien Hirst is apparently endorsing a range of products including these wheel covers (£900 inc vat) for the spare on the back of your blinging 4×4.

My opening statement: At least it’s not two rhinos humping, your honour.

    These plates are over 10K for a set of 12. I can’t decide if I like his chutzpah or want to hit him over the head with it.

    The gambler in me wonders if these things are going to go UP or DOWN in value over time.

    It’s a shame Michaelangelo didn’t think to knock up a limited edition tea-towel whilst he was doing the Sistine Chapel.

    One of the tags to this post is ‘merchandise tat’.

    That is how I see Hirst.

    M. le etc…

    I think the Vatican do them now though, and hologram Jesuses with blood spurting out of the crown of thorns:

    The Catholic Church, now there’s a firm who know their tat : )

    Them tags are sekret codes.

    They certainly do – there is a shop on the roof of the Vatican, just below the dome, staffed by multi-lingual nuns who are selling souvenier tat as fast as they can stuff the money into the tills. There is even a postbox so you can post your cards from up there. My husband missed seeing this spectacle because he was wearing knee length shorts which had been deemed disrespectful and so he was not allowed inside the hallowed halls. There is something seriously twisted in that particular firm. It was worth the experience though, I got the best view in Rome from the top of the dome.

    The Catholic Church: no shorts, but an ermine frock will do nicely.

    Hirst’s mother was a Catholic. It all fits.
