Rod Stuart Loves the Hamptons (12.3.08)

OK. What’s the deal? I’ve been seeing graffiti of “Rod Stuart Loves the Hamptons” all over Manhattan. Apparently it’s in Brooklyn too. This shot here was taken near my office at Morton and Greenwich St.Note the misspelling of Stewart, a smart move for whoever is creating these works. I looked it up and Rod Stuart Loves the Hamptons has its own MySpace page. T-Shirts can be found at RareChic, which leads me to believe that it’s a brilliant artist’s marketing ploy. (Or someone is making a nice buck off of it.) And the shirt costs $73! For a t-shirt!
