Facebook is on the verge of cashing in on what could be the largest IPO in history based on the company’s valuation of $100 billion. However, the luckiest person in the whole deal could be graffiti artist David Choe.



The artist was asked to lay down some funky art in 2005 in Facebook’s first Palo Alto office. Then president Sean Parker offered Choe cash or stock, and David reluctantly chose the stock thinking it would never be worth much. However, it turns out that his small slice of Facebook stock could be worth an estimated $200 million!
