(LOS ANGELES) — The MTV Video Music Awards’ Moonman is getting a makeover.
The new statuette was redesigned by artist KAWS exclusively for the show’s debut in Brooklyn, N.Y., though it will only be presented at this year’s ceremony.
KAWS’ Moonman has “a gun-metal finish, a skull-and-crossbones head with long ears and Companion’s cartoonish gloves, inspired by Mickey Mouse’s,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 2013 VMAs will air live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Aug. 25.
