Kiss Auctions Four MInis On Ebay - Web Exclusive

May 29 eBay auction proceeds to benefit UNICEF to help children in Japan and worldwide

May 31, 2011

Iconic heavy metal band Kiss is running a ten-day Father’s Day Charity Auction, starting May 29 at 4pm PST. Their eBay auction will allow participants to bid on any of four Mini Countryman vehicles, each autographed by the entire band and custom-painted with the makeup for each band member. All of the proceeds will benefit UNICEF to help children in Japan and other emergency relief efforts worldwide.

“Helping others is a gift we can give, but here’s a four-wheel bonus!” said Kiss co-founder Paul Stanley. “The Kiss Mini’s are the ultimate way to show your Kiss Army colors while helping our friends in Japan, who’ve been devastated by the recent earthquake and floods. We’re asking everyone to open their wallets to help UNICEF raise money for children who are still coping with the effects of these disasters.”

The custom-painted vehicles are the all-new 2011 Mini Countryman, and feature the makeup and costume association of one Kiss member including co-founder and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley (Starchild), co-founder and bassist Gene Simmons (The Demon), lead guitarist Tommy Thayer (Spaceman) and drummer Eric Singer (Catman).

“The Kiss Minis are the perfect Father’s Day gift for the man who has everything,” said Kiss co-founder Gene Simmons, “But this ain’t your father’s car. It’s bigger, better and the very best for the man who has the rest. It’s Kiss, baby. The custom-painted Mini Countryman would be the ultimate collector’s item for a Kiss fan or curator of rock band memorabilia, and would be the perfect addition to a car collector’s garage; plus the new owner will have the satisfaction of knowing they’ve supported a great cause.”

The original artwork for all four vehicles was painted by a team of three BMW Group employees, mostly after normal business hours and on weekends. The designs were influenced by each band member’s makeup, as well as some attributes of their costumes. Each car was taken apart and components were painted individually to ensure proper coverage and a quality finish that will last.
