Mega-rich clothing designer Marc Ecko pulled off the unbelievable staging of a two minute video in which what appears to be Air Force One is slathered with the spraypainted phrase “Still Free.” The phrase comes from Ecko’s latest video game, “Getting Up.”

“I wanted to do something culturally significant, wanted to create a real pop-culture moment,” said Marc Ecko of Marc Ecko Enterprises. “It’s this completely irreverent, over-the-top thing that could really never happen: this five-dollar can of paint putting a pimple on this Goliath.”
Ecko later explained the stint here. The video was staged covertly using a rented 747 at a hangar at San Bernadino airport.
