Artist Brandon Bird talks about his Jerry Orbach tribute car

Last year artist Brandon Bird crowdfunded the creation of the Jerry Orbach Memorial Art Car, bringing in over $23,000.

In this Super Deluxe video, Bird shares why he was inspired to create this badass "rolling memorial" of the Law & Order actor.
