The three people who just walked through the Twitter Art Gallery (presumably looking for the toilet) must have stared at the above picture and mused, “Wots this? The Chuckle Brothers are an art form now?”
But don’t worry art lovers, Twitter isn’t going into the art business any time soon. No, they’ll be sticking to their core business – turning blurred and naked selfies into trippy Polaroids.
And what are we talking about exactly? Allow me to explain.
The story all began earlier this week when The Poke website threw down a challenge to its readers. They asked them to turn placid works of art into visions of comic beauty. Yes, go put the Chuckle Brothers’ faces onto some famous paintings.
So off they all went. Off to the land of Photo-shop, where digital talent shines and magic markers glow. Baby steps Tweeters baby steps, distort this, render that, there you go… a Laughing Cavalier with a slightly bigger nose.
It wasn’t long before a bizarre trend began on Twitter, a trend complete with it’s very own hashtag. Hundreds of magic eyed genies all displaying like Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Of course, it’s only a matter of time before the Glittering Gays of HootSuite show up and quench our thirst for a sparkle-embedded Vincent Van Chuckle!
Well it’s been much, much, MUCH ado about nothing because all the Poke really wanted was to keep us going back and forth to their website until our minds were all “oooh’d” out. I guess this foolish nonsense must have worked for them. Probably.
Now that’s all said and done, try and remember this. Any fool can become one with art and any art can become one with a fool. But if you set out to make a fool out of art… then you’re an idiot.
That’s right Messrs Poke, I’m looking at you.
