9500 USD
$9,500.00

Description:

An amazing automaton titled, "Consensus 2013," which is the brain child of businessman and investment guru Sam Zell. Given to one of his closest friends as an end of the year gift, the automaton satirizes Obamacare.
This automaton's music is set to "Santa Clause is Coming to Town," with lyrics like "Obamacare is Coming to Town." The automaton comes with its original instructions and lyrics to sing along.
Sam Zell has 675 automatons made each year and gives them out as New Year's presents. This is number 166. The automatons are freestanding sculptural objects that represent a different topic each year. They are charged with an AC adapter and then started by the push of a button.
They begin by playing a New Year's message from Sam Zell and then continue with a song parody, generally about the economy. The automatons move at the same time as they play the message and song.
