We revealed yesterday that the biggest douchebag in the world Martin Shkreli had purchased the one of a kind Wu Tang Clan record for $2 million. We also mentioned that the negotiations between the two parties took some time as there was lots of due diligence to perform and contracts to sign.
We figured this would be the usual case of boring financial bullshit so didn’t really pay much attention to that detail, but it’s turned out that the Wu Tang Clan have inserted one of the most absolutely incredible clauses we’ve ever seen in a contract into it. Get a load of this:

Forget the $2M, this is easily the most interesting part of the whole deal between Wu-Tang and Martin Shkreli. pic.twitter.com/5nSshXhjnJ

In case you can’t quite read that, then here it is again:
The buying party also agrees that, at any time during the stipulated 88 year period, the seller may legally plan and attempt to execute one (1) heist or caper to steal back Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which, if successful, would return all ownership rights to the seller.
Said heist or caper can only be undertaken by currently active members of the Wu-Tang Clan and/or actor Bill Murray, with no legal repercussions.
Wow. That’s almost like a Get Out Of Jail Free Card right there. Nice work RZA.
It’s unclear at this point whether or not Bill Murray was aware of his inclusion in the clause, but we’re hoping that he was fully aware of what was going on and is climbing into a catsuit, priming his night vision goggles and assembling a crack team of specialists as we speak. Come on Bill, do it for us and don’t let that prick Shrkeli get away with this!
If you don’t believe Bill Murray could pull this off, then check out this inspirational speech he gave to some guys at a bachelor party. That will make you believe.
