One of Andy Warhol’s most famous paintings of Marilyn Monroe is about to be sold at auction and Christies Auction House in London is expecting $200 million.

TWO. HUNDRED. MILLION. DOLLARS. Yes it’s a pretty picture but god damn that’s a lot of money.


Pink Marilyn Monroe worth $200mil


To reeeeally put into perspective I’ve collated a list of things you can get for $200 million dollars that isn’t a painting of the ‘Happy Birthday Mr President’ lady.

This Mansion in France – $132mil


200 x Rolls-Royce Phantoms – $1.2mil

My own freakin’ island – $60mil

In conclusion, if you have $200 million to throw around PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD buy something good. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
