david choe's tribute to the kid with the red backpack

Los Angeles artist David Choe was one of the many who shared the viral video of that kid getting his ass kicked in a back alley, noting "Some things I like about this guy, his hair , his red pants , how he never takes off his backpack , and how he won't stay down with 6 guys kicking his head in."

In this wall mural, he pays homage to the 17-year-old victim with the red backpack: "My tribute to all the f.o.b.ly dressed oriental kids who never take off their heavy backpacks even when they're getting their faces kicked in." Perhaps now the most famous red backpack in America.
