Who Will Be The Worst Person at Your Thanksgiving Table?


A big part of Thanksgiving is sitting down for a meal with people you might not necessarily like, but for obvious reasons you can’t say anything about it. So to provide some catharsis, we sent Cousin Sal out onto Hollywood Blvd. to let people vent about the worst person at their Thanksgiving table.

Black Friday Shopping Chaos [Super Cut Compilation]

Fights, stampedes, riots and utter chaos, this latest super cut compilation shows that Black Friday is an out of control American tradition that has a way of bringing out the worst in people who are unaware that it’s 2013 and Cyber Monday is now the best shopping day of the year.

Zelda in Real Life Part II


Mission Report: Spartacus In Real Life

For our latest mission we staged the iconic “I am Spartacus!” scene from Spartacus in a Manhattan Starbucks. I ordered a drink and gave the name “Spartacus.” When the barista called the name, a group of 20 men stood up one-by-one proclaiming to be Spartacus. The real punchline arrived at the end, when a man dressed as a Roman slave arrived to claim the beverage. The scene was produced without the knowledge of the Starbucks.

Full Story.

Lego Batman and Robin, Joker’s Funhouse

Welcome to The Joker’s Funhouse. This Lego creation is loosely based on several of the Batman Video Game Funhouses. The Funhouse is built with three “levels” to allow for three separate Batman and Robin scenes. I built the Funhouse over a two month period and debuted it at Brickcon 2013 in Seattle. The automation is powered with Lego Power Function Motors. The lighting is from IKEA.

The Argentine photography collective M.A.F.I.A. (Movimiento Argentino de Fotógrafxs Independientes Autoconvocadxs) posted a gallery of Batman in his down-and-out period.

Bruce Wayne Do Santos. Ex-millonario. Ex-propietario de latifúndios subterráneos. Ex-superamigo. Removido, desalojado, desterrado, vagando por Rio City.
Una cruda mezcla de performance, comics y arte callejero.

Bruce Wayne Do Santos. Ex-millionaire. Ex-owner of underground estates. Ex-superfriend. Dismissed, homeless, landless. Wandering the city of Rio. A raw mixture of performance, comics, and street art.
