Watching the video you can see the likeness VP, as Robert says let's hope it doesn't get tagged.

I don't really like graffiti, but I do like this image. If you have to have graffiti, you might as well have nice graffiti.

Nice to see a man putting his whole self into singing his song without jumping around.

Bummer to die before becoming real famous.
