Writing curses in cursive wasn't the only sophisticated ignorance Jay-Z and Kanye West were on in their "Otis" music video. They also took a $350,000 Maybach to the chop shop, completely destroying the luxury vehicle just for the hell of it. Now, over half a year later, news has come out that Hov and West will be auctioning the vehicle for charity at a Phillips de Pury auction.
"The funds raised from auctioning off the 'Otis' car are greatly needed to help sustain families over the next several months," said Save the Children CEO Carolyn Miles. "We are grateful to Jay-Z and Kanye West for offering up pop culture history to do good for children in Africa."
Although the car isn't expected to get anywhere near the retail price, the organization is still hoping to pull in around $100,000. The auction will take place in New York on March 8.
