“I would take it to the volcano, and throw it in, and watch it explode.”

Based out of Byron Bay, Ozzy Wright (or Wrong) is an accomplished surfer-artist best known for his technical aerial innovations that featured in the evergreen surf flicks ‘156 tricks’, and ‘doped youth’, his iconic punk graphic artworks featured on a range of multimedia, his incredible performances in S.U.R.F, and his esteemed judging in Stab Highway

Ozzy’s artworks have been showcased in Australia, the US, France, Japan, England, Switzerland, and Indonesia, and have frequently been featured in various brand collections with Volcom.

His latest collaboration, however, is worlds apart from surf culture, with the French fashion house and luxury goods company founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton, commissioning him to paint a box. 

“I was so stoked to get a call from Louis Vuitton himself who asked me and 199 other artists around the world to paint him a box to celebrate his 200th birthday!!!! They even donated ten thousand euros in my name to a charity to help underprivileged kids create some art. I enjoyed the project so much I wrote a song about it 👍😃👍,” says Oz in his IG caption.

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along:

“Louie, Louie. Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong. See I painted a box for Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong. I wanted to keep it, to take on a trip. But then I realized, you can’t open it. Plus, it weighs a tonne, but it’s Louis Vuitton, Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong.

All right now.

I would take it, to the volcano, and throw it in, and watch it explode. My socks would be burnt, incinerated, Louie would be bummed, and I would be hated. Louie, Louie. Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong.

I got the box in March, and didn’t paint it till November, they thought I was lazy, but you’ve got to remember, I’ve been busy as hell, surfing every swell. Louie, Louie, Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong. 

I didn’t get paid, well not exactly. They gave 10,000 euros to a charity. Yeah, the name’s in Louis Vuitton. Louie, Louie, it’s Ozzy Wrong. That’s Louis Vuitton, It’s Ozzy Wrong.”
