Koons Bunny Balloon

Why I love Jeff Koons - he sold the idea of a stainless steel replica of an inflated bunny in the 80s as an art piece,  and now, 20 years later, re-sold the idea to the Macy's Parade to re-create the stainless steel rip-off in a giant balloon, bringing the rip off back to it's original inflated (ego) origins...
Brilliant!  Original bunny, as produced in sweat shop = $1.50 retail (at least that's how much I paid for mine)  Estimate for production of balloon?!?
Wow - still in the wrong business...

(I know this is only SLIGHTLY related to World's Largest Things, but still....)
