Celebrities of today’s world hold an interesting power in our society that isn’t shared by any other “category” of human being.  Where politicians create morale and exercise there influences over policies and laws, Hollywood stars have the ability to shape our society socially and physically. It only makes sense that entertainment be represented more in our world history for others who come after us to properly understand our trends and patterns, where they came from and more importantly why.  Putting it simply, stars often control the short term where as world leaders have a grip on the long term and safety of the nation.  This unique balance between influences is what makes a new time capsule-inspired project The Symbol of Success such an amazing and new idea.

The S.O.S project already invites the idea of a true spectacle by replacing the burial chamber with the most expensive car in the world – a 70-million dollar Rolls-Royce Phantom with a V12, 453 horsepower, 6.75-litre turbocharged engine and an additional overhaul by the Texas Armoring Corporation.  As if that wasn’t enough they have Justin Barnes from American Chopper fame doing the graphic design, which will be important as famous quotes, phrases as well as symbols will be etched on the outside of this utopian car as part of the project.  The interior of the vehicle will hold symbolic icons, historical documents and mementos that define our culture as a whole.

What sets the project apart from others like it in the past (besides the car of course) is that only half of this vehicle will be filled with quotes and documents from world leaders and revolutionary companies while the other half will be devoted to the biggest celebrities of all time.  Stars like Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Oprah, Kim Kardashian, to name a few can either choose to put their own mark on history or can pay to support a charity of their choosing.

Once the capsule, and we use that word lightly, is complete it will make an international media tour spanning a few years beginning in none other than Sin City, arguably the perfect place for such a wildly expressive all inclusive piece of history.  Afterwards it will be buried for a hundred years before resurfacing.

This is the perfect time for something like The Symbol of Success because our world is evolving faster than it ever has before.  Whether from a technological aspect, or the obvious shortening between generationsm, it will be amazing to see how different celebrity life and “style” will change and shape the future.
