If you see someone walking around wearing Richard Parry’s giant Arcade Fire bobblehead mask, perform a citizen’s arrest immediately. During an Arcade Fire show in Birdgeport, CT, someone stole the mask, and the band is not happy about it. They used the masks in the “Reflektor” video, they appeared with them on Saturday Night Live, and they’ve become a part of all the recent live shows.
They released a statement to Brooklyn Vegan:
Richy’s bobblehead mask was taken from our show in Bridgeport, CT. This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show. We have photos of the theft but rather than press charges we would prefer if the person who took it would get in touch with us to return it. Perhaps this is all an innocent mistake and you meant to leave the venue with your own oversized paper mache rendition of Richard Parry’s head? Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org with any information.
Here’s an important GIF so you never forget this mask’s face:
