The Story Behind That ‘KANYE 2020?’ Banner Downtown

It’s exactly what you think

Days after Professor Kanye West said—among many, many other things—that he’d like to run for president of the United States, the world is still grappling with Kanye 2020.

Shawn Sar, the owner of the downtown event space Casa Vertigo, took to the city’s skyline to workshop his feelings. Yesterday he had a ‘KANYE 2020?’ banner installed atop the property overlooking the 10 and 110 freeways.

“He wants to see what comes of it,” says Chris Go, Vertigo’s Director of Events. “Shawn’s biggest dream would be to have Kanye come to the roof and take some photos or to launch his campaign headquarters out of Casa Vertigo.”
