Worlds collide! My friend Tyler Atkins, Australian-TV-star-turned-Hollywood-regular-star has been friends with Mark Paul Deren for over 10 years. So when Tyler wanted his vintage Brougham painted, he didn’t have to look very far. Spoiler alert: this is real, he drives this every day, it is not a joke.
Tyler showed me that when you just have to park in a loading zone, just leave your door open. It gives the illusion that someone just hopped out, or is about to get in. He left it like this for an hour and a half.
Tyler reminds me a lot of myself. Exceptional hair, we both won the Amazing Race, and our fans make it impossible to walk freely around the Grove. Now you can add art car-lector.. zing!
Whitewalls... not to be confused with the white walls in Ferguson, MO.
And keeping my trend alive, men wearing women’s sunglasses. Follow Tyler Atkins on Instagram (@tylerockit) and watch him become everything you couldn’t, and you have no excuse because you live here.
