eyeballs"Pulse" DVD prop up for bid
Proceeds of eyeball auction to benefit the homeless

Homelessness organization Crisis is auctioning the eyeballs seen on the cover of the recent release of Pink Floyd's "Pulse" DVD. Proceeds of the auction will go to benefit the homeless.

The auction runs on eBay through December 20. Visit the item online now.

One of only 10 such props created for the DVD project, the eyeballs stand approximately six feet tall and have been signed by designer Storm Thorgerson and the band's Nick Mason, Rick Wright and David Gilmour, who is a longtime supporter of Crisis.

"The eBay auction will not only raise much needed funds for the charity but will also raise awareness of the plight of the homeless at a time of year when they are most vulnerable," Gilmour says.

The eBay auction coincides with the broadcast of Pink Floyd's "A Performance of The Dark Side of the Moon," filmed at Earls Court in 1994, which forms part of the "Pulse" DVD. The performance is scheduled for Dec. 15 on BBC1.
