New York ice cream truck sells Eat the Rich popsicles

New York, Jul 12 (EFE).- A pop up ice cream truck in New York is selling ‘Eat the Rich’ popsicles in the shape of some of the world’s wealthiest men, including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

From Munch Musk, Suck Zuck, Snack on Jack, Gobble Gates and Bite Bezos, customers can choose from five different ice cream flavors in the shapes of billionaires Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Jack Ma.

The ice cream stand, an initiative by Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF, comes under the slogan Mschfsicle, a parody of US brand Popsicle, and sells ice creams for $10 each, expensive even for New York standards.

The initiative was inspired by a phrase by French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau who once said: “When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich.”

The art collective has however strayed from expressing any political manifesto and told Efe the trucks just sell vanilla ice cream in the shape of rich entrepreneurs.

So far, Munch Musk, in the shape of the Tesla founder, has been the best-selling ice cream, according to the ice cream stand salesman.

The ice cream truck will travel from Brooklyn to Manhattan in New York and will be touring in Los Angeles in California too. EFE
