Marc Ecko: Holy Sh*t, Air Force One Is Selling Out!
Holy sh*t, Marc Ecko the graffiti artist and founder of fashion brand Ecko hijackes Barack Obama’s Air Force One!
On 20 April 2006, Marc Ecko, graffiti artist and founder of Ecko fashion apparel pulled off a stunt: a film of himself and his crew spray painting the Air Force One with the words: Still Free.
It was one big hoax.
How Marc Ecko hijacked The Air Force One?
On 9 May 2013 US news filtered that the Air Force One – the Presidential Aircraft for Barack Obama – was up for bid.
Marco Ecko seizes this rare opportunity and buys Air Force One.
Next Ecko and his team stripped the plane and used it to launch a satirical campaign with a hint of irony.
Is this the new deal retail pop-up store?
