Living In The Digital Underground?

Due to my affinity for music and all things odd, I found the construction and abandonment if the live in sculpture of The Digital Underground’s, Humpty Hump astounding and rather comical.

In 1993, The Digital Underground commissioned a $50,000 head of Greg Jacobs (aka Humpty Hump) from FM Productions (of Pink Floyd’s pig fame).  The head was used in the groups video to promote their single “Return Of The Crazy One”.

The sculpture stands 12ft tall and 16ft wide and comes equip with a dressing room, green room, elevator, light up glasses and lip/chin that doubles as stairs.

Humpty sit abandoned in an Oakland prop warehouse and has only had one former tennant, a man evicted from his apartment, who lived in the head fro several weeks.  So Humpty Hump is up for grabs, but buyer beware, the real Humpty is looking to buy it back or rent it should he need it again.
