A bit quirky, a bit fun, the assembly line for VMAN 21 took place the last 2 days at VMAN Magazine‘s headquarter at 11 Mercer Street, just doors away from Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer flagship store. Dressed in sterile white tracksuits, the 3 hired helps (models by day) earnestly begin by folding crisp new dollar bills and insert them into an slot made on the magazine’s cover. Coincidentally by the mouth of Kanye West, the issue’s feature story. In one motion, the magazine is passed onto the polyolefin dispenser before shrink-wrapped via a heat gun. Though the folks at VMAN will not confirm just how many of the “money in mouth” special editions are in circulation now, they stated out of each shipment will only have 2 issues of the quirky cover mixed with the regular lot. Definitely something to contemplate about next time you’re going to the magazine kiosk.
