David Choe, the graffiti artist who made headlines for having an estimated $200 million in Facebook stock, spent the last week in New York, granting interviews to a lucky few media outlets.
He snubbed the New York Times and Wall Street Journal but did agree to speak with Howard Stern, Barbara Walters for ABC’s "Nightline," and the Taiwanese animated news service Next Media Animation.
Howard Stern offered to adopt Choe, after double checking that the artist still had the Facebook shares. Choe admitted that he had sold some a while ago but still had plenty left. The two agreed that if the adoption comes off, Choe would henceforth be known as Kim Jong Stern.
Barbara Walters allowed the artist to tag her shirt — while she was wearing it — and joined Choe in attempting to spray paint a wall, before asking him piercing questions about what he plans to do next. (He's not sure, but he'd like to go away for a while).
