I was just watching a recent MTV interview with Robert Pattinson (shut up) when he mentioned that his beloved co-star, Tai in “Water for Elephants“, was the same elephant at Banksy’s Barely Legal show in Los Angeles a few years back. I was one of many who waited in line for hours, in east L.A., in the hot, HOT heat, to see this show. Summer of 2006, remember that? When temps were at 120 easy. Don’t agree with painting the poor animal, but she was luckily paint-free at the time of my visit.
