No matter how big a spender you are, you’ll never be as big a spender as Sylvester Stallone. That’s one lesson Eric Church says he learned when he thought he was going to be cool by buying two Rolexes at the same time only to find out that the Rocky actor had beat him to the punch.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the singer was asked about his most indulgent purchase. That’s when Church revealed his big Rolex moment that was spoiled by Rocky.
I always remember the gold watch my grandfather got when he retired from the police force. A few years ago, my wife and I were in New York, and I thought, “I’m-a buy us each a Rolex.” It turns out Sylvester Stallone had just come in the store with his staff to celebrate the last Rocky movie. So I’m thinking I’m gonna walk in and impress them by buying two Rolexes, and they go, “Yeah, we just sold 16 to Sylvester Stallone.” I thought, “Well, shit, there goes that.”
Man, that’s one sad story. On the bright side, at least if he ever meets Stallone in person he’ll have a great story to break the ice with.
