Ronald McDonald + Something Violent and Crazy (Like Money) = SHOCK

This sketch from Portlandia, which has already proven it’s very good at making fun of art, is a pretty enjoyable take on the pretentiousness of anti-corporate art. The best jab, at the end, points to the fact that anti-corporate art is really as corporate friendly as any other type of art. There’s a market for everything, even something that’s hoping to be anti-market.

    This has to be at least a little bit of a spoof of Ron English, right?

      I felt that way too.
