Brooke Candy Walks Elon Musk Like a "Doge" in Her First NFT Release
Published Apr 06, 2021Shock art musician/former rapper Brooke Candy has returned with some new material — only it's not music. The artist has announced an NFT auction for her new work of visual art, which sees her walking Elon Musk like a dog.
Titled "I Wanna Be Your Doge," the work is listed on Foundation's blockchain auction site, marking Candy's very first NFT release. It shows Musk in bondage wear with Candy dressed in the costume she wore for Grimes' "Genesis" music video. Candy first donned the outfit way back in 2012 for her starring role in the video, back before Musk was even a blip on Claire Boucher's radar.
Along with the digital artwork — which you can preview below — the first person to purchase "I Wanna Be Your Doge" will get their own tailor-made copy of the outfit.
Bidding for the NFT starts tomorrow (April 7) at 3 p.m. ET. See the listing here, and check out Candy's appearance in "Genesis" below.
