"sadly last night the trippy green skully, my old friend and touring partner for over two years, was stolen last night after my set at the av-erie gallery in chicago.
"this skull is a major part of my set, a vital instrument in my performance. i leave for a month long tour of sold out shows on wednesday and i dont know what i will do without it.
"it was taken off of the strobe light, so its a hollow plastic skull made up of tiny little green beads melted into the shape of a trippy green skull.
"if anyone has any information about this that leads to the skulls safe return i will send you a package of wondrous treats and guest list you for a year to all shows i play in whatever city you want.
"if you stole the skull or know who stole the skull and are afraid to contact me because you/they are a thief coward you can contact sam hunt at email@example.com and he will facilitate its safe return. again, my next tour begins in 3 days.
Get him home safe, like the banana.
