During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Eric Church was asked about the most extravagant purchase he’s ever made.
Church said that he and his wife were in New York a few years ago when he decided to buy them each a Rolex watch. He assumed the double purchase would impress the staff. Little did he know, Sylvester Stallone had just been in the store to celebrate the release of the last Rocky movie, Creed.
As Eric began his high-roller purchase, a member of the staff said, “Yeah, we just sold 16 [watches] to Sylvester Stallone.” Turns out you can be cool, but you’ll never be Rocky Balboa cool, and Eric learned that lesson the hard way. (Rolling Stone)
