What do you do while you’re waiting for your car to be serviced? Read a magazine? Play games on your phone? Call somebody? One anonymous man just doodled on a styrofoam cup with a ballpoint pen, but by the looks of it, this is not the first time he has done something like this. Covered in chain links, designs, cartoon characters, and words in negative, it’s mind-boggling how he got his hand into the inside of the cup to draw with this much detail. He left the impressive cup behind with important messages for all those who see it, which thanks to redditor SquishyMcPhee is now close to a million people.[see_also]
SquishyMcPhee saw this styrofoam masterpiece while getting his oil changed and all that is known about the artist is that he is a guy and he made it during his 3 hour wait. The messages read, “Each of us has choices to make each day. What you choose determines your future and the person you become” on the outside, “If you look deep within a piece of art you will find a piece of its creator” on the inside, “Smile – It’s easy ‘N’ it’s free” on the inner bottom circle, and “Recycle. Be a link in nature’s chain.” on the outer bottom circle. Reddit has uncovered many mysteries before and this one is no different. jenquat revealed that the work seems to be of a man named William Hersey who is an instructor at Tinker Technology Center at Tinker AFB and he has made thousands of cups like these! SquishyMcPhee is trying to get him to do an AMA on Reddit!
