Lionel Richie's Giant Head: Kickstarter Project Of The Day

So, these dudes on Kickstarter want to make a giant Lionel Richie head for this year's Bestival in the UK. But they need your support to do it--to the tune of about $7,622.
From the potential creators: "We started this ambitious and frankly odd public art project almost a year ago. Inspired by internet pop culture our goal was to make an installation that people could interact and talk with."

"A good looking Lionel Richie Head at a respectable height (3m) will cost us £4,900. This includes the internal turbines to keep his head up, internal sandbags to keep his head down and £1,000 for overnight Bestival security (aka Head Guards)."


"This will be a fully immersive, slightly surreal and very personal experience. As people enter one at a time, they will discover at the core of Lionel’s Head lies a telephone. When a person answers the phone, they hear 'Hello, is it me you’re looking for?'"


Rewards for contributors include Lionel Richie Head t-shirts, face masks, and an overnight stay for two inside Lionel Richie's head.

  1. HAHAHA! Well, that overnight stay is tempting, but I'm afraid they won't be getting any of my money. Good luck to them, though! :D

  2. Oh, we must make this happen! If you can't own the actual clay head from the Hello video this is a close second...
