You are looking at Costas Schuler's Mercedes Pens, covered in at least (depending on the day, he says) 5,000 used writing instruments. Why, you ask? We're guessing something just clicked one day and he thought it was the right thing to do. So he got on the ball and, using silicone and pens received by him, made his point.
Schuler takes the car across the country, making an indelible mark on all those who see it. After all, a car covered in pens is bound to make a permanent impression.
