    The luxury Maybach vehicle Kanye West and Jay-Z had their way with in their video for "Otis" from their Watch the Throne video was auctioned off last weekend to the tune of $60,000. That is less than half of the expected haul, so it didn't do as well as the estimates.

    West and the Hova dismantled the 2004 Maybach 47 motor and turned it into a bit of a hot rod that they drove on a closed course.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the chopped up car will be donated to non-profit organization Save the Children.

    What do you think the anonymous bidder should do with the car?
