Per the twitter feed in the link, this was an April Fools prank on him by some other Google guys: they used a wrap like you see for advertising on some cars and buses, so it's entirely reversible. They'd need the car for a few hours, but I imagine it's not his only car and it was possible to get the keys (Tesla might even have been in on it -- "we need your car for some routine service" -- isn't Brin a Tesla investor?)

Pretty awesome. I think he should keep it like that permanently. Geoff would approve of the color.

Heh. In my defense, eyelashes and pink latex wrap is only slightly more creative than attaching Swaroski crystals to your iPhone case with a hot glue gun. Step up your game, rich people. I want sharks with freakin' lasers attached to their foreheads.
