Banksy-paris.com is a site claiming to be delivering updates on the artists new Paris-based stunt series. It’s supposedly Day 3 of the new campaign, and now a video has been released entitled ‘Feed The Pigeons…’
And now we genuinely hope this is all bullshit.
Aside from the fact that it looks like this thing took all of 5 minutes to set up, the concept here is pretty empty if not completely nonexistent. The video captures a mannequin-like character sitting slumped over on a bench with pigeons at its feet. And that’s it. A dude and some pigeons. Oh, sorry I forgot, the dude is wearing a brown hat. Marvel at the brilliance.
The mannequin appears to be comprised of maybe a wire base and some saran wrap, while that man’s fedora looks like it was obtained from a trash bin. Banksy or not, we’re not sure we get it. You can watch the video for yourself above. Or you could put on a hat, pack yourself a sandwich, and go feed some birds – it would be a better use of your time.
