Latest interview with Upper Playground artist David Choe on Bloomberg TV :
Remember that time that David Choe drew Mark Zuckerberg doing his 100 Pushups at Facebook Office HQ this past Spring? We do. We were there.
After a stop by the Howard Stern show, David Choe heading over to film a segment with the esteemed (and pretty much the best) TV media journalist we can think of… Barbara Walters. Its getting good… watch out for the David Choe interview with Barbara Walters on ABC’s “Nightline” this Thursday, February 9, 2012.
As we mentioned yesterday, our good friend David Choe is on the Howard Stern radio show (get a subscription, just do it now, its cheap and worth it) and he decided to give Mr. Stern a little gift. Um, there are going to be some people who are going to want that Choe for Stern piece in the near future. Stay tuned for more…
We have been going back to our archives all weekend, looking for some of the footage of David Choe painting the first Facebook offices back in 2005, especially now that Choe will be on Howard Stern tomorrow to discuss himself and his relationship with Facebook and perhaps to get naked. Here are some classic photos of Choe’s work from his first trip to Facebook, and some of the walls completed. My, how times have changed.
Funny thing is, Harry Kim caught the most perfect moment that he could ever catch in this conversation between David Choe and Sean Parker at Facebook, circa 2005, before word of the Choe, Facebook IPO news broke. A nice historical perspective, and a seemingly normal, mundane discussion becomes something worthy of intrigue.

Some people have dreams of fame and fortune, and others want to sit next to Baba Booey and a short man with bugged out teeth named Beetlejuice. David Choe is living his dream. Tomorrow, Tuesday February 7, 2012, David Choe will be in NYC making an experience on the Howard Stern radio show, discussing all things Facebook, art, gambling, porn, and perhaps Dave will get naked. If Howard asks, of course. Stay tuned at UpperPlayground.com for an entire week of news of David’s week in NYC, as well as information on his drumming position in South African musical group, Die Antwoord.

From Harry Kim’s Dirty Hands, a moment from 2005 when David Choe originally painted the Facebook offices, with Sean Parker checking in on Dave’s progress. As you know, Dave returned in 2012 to paint the newest Facebook offices, and things have changed just a little, tiny bit.
