Over the past two months, while I’ve been working on various Foogos from the Ducks to the Whalers to the Flames to the Canucks, I’ve been chipping away at the Montreal Canadiens Foogo on an almost daily basis. It’s one of the few pieces I’ve made thus far that doesn’t have a short shelf life, since I made it entirely out of chewing gum, placed onto a piece of Carolina board I cut into the shape of the Habs logo.The people at Wrigley’s should sponsor this site or something. When it was all said and done, here’s how it all went down:
Big Red: 80 pieces
Winterfresh: 77 pieces
Doublemint: 85 pieces
Altogether, I spent about $18 on 18 packs of gum (15 pieces per pack). The Foogo itself measures 15″ wide, 10.25″ tall.
I didn’t have my camera with me today, and I promised the people of Twitter that I would have this Foogo ready on Friday, so I was forced to scan this at work. Yes, there is still gum on the scanner.
The good news is that unlike the other Foogos, this one doesn’t need to be destroyed right away. I don’t know, maybe it will last for a while, at least until it gets really hot, melts into the sidewalk and the gets stuck on someone’s shoe.
