Well, Chris Alan, maker of this ventriloquist figure sent this info to me:

Just thought you might like to know, my Anderson Cooper figure aka Mini Cooper) was featured on Anderson’s show, AC360. In case you missed it, Anderson Cooper did a wonderful segment about Mini Cooper and ventriloquism, in general! Hope all is well!

    My two cents what ever Anderson cooper talked about or did doesn’t make that figure worth $360.000 I don’t care what anybody says. My opinion is that litte figure is more like $360.00 value. One thing for sure anyone who has any sense at all would agree.

      Good luck finding a custom-sculpted, hand-made ventriloquist dummy for $360. Please let us all know when you do.

    • Chris Alan says:

      If you watched the video, you would realize the $360k price tag was a joke. I did not want to sell Mini Cooper, so attached a ridiculous price to prevent that from happening.
