Now you can buy a mini version of that "Sorry to Bother You" man-boffing-horse sculpture

In Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You, there's a protest scene where there's a 12-foot-tall "Steve Lift Fucking a Horse" sculpture. It's hard to miss!

Well, come to find out, my badass friend Spy Emerson (whose Hook Up Truck made international news a few years back) is the artist who created it. And now I've learned, on Boots' request, she's made a mini version of the sculpture to sell.

If you want to get on your hands it, you can find her on Instagram or Patreon. Or you can reach her through her website.
