Call me uncultured, but unless you’re using the tissue paper and tape to cover up dents, scratches or rust, or using it to camouflage a new model, I’m not entirely sure why you would do this to a car.  But, in fairness, art is meant to evoke emotion and that it does, for me, it brings back memories of my Yo MTV Raps days.
