My favorite options are products from the Yellow Fever clothing line
Very limited edition (under 25) silk-screened for Yellow Fever clothing line. Vincent Gallo in no way endorses the Yellow Fever brand and allowed his image to appear as a favor. A favor he regrets.

I'm sad he took down most of his posts on Instagram where he screen printed shirts of various liberal politicians like Justin Trudeau and added words like "CUCK" to them.

Mine as well. Bought this same day I ordered the Second Sight Blu-ray for the 90s Mario Bros movie, so making questionable life decisions all around.

Damn, if I didn't support blu-ray and I don't support UHD, what do I even support anymore? As Mercury's retrograde ends, mine begins

Are they all here? I like the one for George Washington that says "Another one of the many many many great white men"

Which one of you added the “I Take No Responsibility” shirt to your order?

Not surprisingly, he's from Buffalo, where the racism has gotten a lot louder in recent years (I have family there and visit as little as I have to).

Not sure if anyone got their copy yet. Mine came in and can report it has zero special features, zero chapter stops and a menu reminiscent of the end credits to Buffalo ‘66. As sparse as it gets, but no complaints from me!

I wonder if it’s too limited or at this point not part of the cultural conciousness to cause a stir (partly due to Gallo’s reclusiveness the last decade), but the cover is going to get some people angry. He replaced the very good original poster of the Sony release with

A low-res image of a black woman giving a white man a blowjob from what looks like a very digital, shot on mini DV porno. No clue what the source is.

Well, I'm glad he clarified in the listing that he didn't mean to offend with the cover! /s

Upon closer inspection, the woman seems to be sucking off a mannoquin.

For what it's worth, the presentation on the cover is about as tasteful as you can imagine such a thing

Can someone post a picture of the cover? My curiosity got the better of me.

I feel like that would go against Gallo's wishes

Reddit users seem to have had great results DMing Gallo directly, so if you're hot enough maybe he'll text back? Or at least offer you to Venmo him in exchange, maybe. But either way, it'll probably show up sometime in the near future, right?

I agree about Yoko Ono and Michelle Obama, otherwise, I dunno....

Does anyone get a sense of whether Gallo has been engaged in a decades-long performance-art project or if he has genuinely been infected by brain worms or maybe both at once?

I have a sense that this latest project was not performance art but a psych lab experiment to see if any rebels out there would "go against his wishes".

That statement is libelous to both brains and worms, I'm sorry to say, but it's not a uncommon idea to wonder if both can be true simultaneously.

What is clear is that VG is very aware of his internet presence, and never really went away, like Russell Edgington on True Blood (a hoary comparison, or the absolute best? The most appropriate surname, at least.). Regrettably, I'm still a fan of VG's past work, but as anyone with half a lid open will tell you, you cannot remove the artist from the art. Though he seems to spend most of his current time using throwaway accounts to leave negative reviews of Tuscon area businesses (or anywhere between LA and NYC unlucky enough to not abide by his worldview), his hand is always wide open, and you always know it's him, which some might say is the truest mark of a real artist. However, that this artist is oftentimes more than a casual racist is part of why he is the way he is (along with whatever pushed him into existing solely for himself at any cost, never giving into anyone, and always playing by his own rules, etc.), you have to wonder if at this point if you're aiding and abetting the perp.

In summation: he's not Ray Johnson (or Jean Michel Basquiat, or Yogi Berra, or even Charles Dera) - he's just Vincent Gallo.

Anyone interested in how long he’s been keeping this up would do well to seek out the otherwise forgettable documentary about Republicans in Hollywood, as that filmmaker expresses their doubts as to Gallo’s sincerity many, many years prior to these antics. But I think either at some point who you pretend to be becomes who you are, or sometimes the reality is worse than the satirical version— I still remember the disbelief of many that Nick Searcy’s Twitter account was in fact wholly sincere and not a joke. Some people are just that far out there no matter what their profession is.
