Drunken Christie’s CEO Crashes Car into Sotheby’s Evening Sale

Drunk Christies

LONDON – Last evening, Guillaume Cerutti, Chief Executive Officer of Christie’s, crashed his car into the Sotheby’s London auction hall. According to police reports, Cerutti was drunk –  from alcohol and rage. “He was angry and stewing all night,” said Cerutti’s favorite bartender Daniel McMillon in an interview with ArtChortle Press. “I could hear him muttering all afternoon about how Sotheby’s was so smug and how he was going to ‘show them who’s boss’.” Those in attendance at the auction, of modern and contemporary work, were reportedly unphased by the crash. Many assumed it was a performance piece and bidding on the crash reached £5 million before Sotheby’s officials were able to communicate the mistake. -CQ
