Artist: Banksy

Banksy has made an installation in New York called "The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill" and apparently he's using some crazy animatronics. CRAZY.
Here are some stills of a few of his Village pets:

There's a bunny in her boudoir.

And fish sticks in their tank.

And Chicken McNuggets slurping up BBQ sauce!

The videos of the installation are definitely the most amazing, though. I like the one of the monkey sitting in a dark space with headphones on, watching other monkeys doing it.

I also love the video of the hot dogs and other various processed meats looking like happy turds under their sun lamps.

If you want to learn more about the installation, go to the Wooster Collective.  For a great video of some of the reactions to Banksy's work, go to The Guardian.

I love the bunny! The monkey's pretty great too, but the meat freaks me out! It's totally awesome in design, and I like the conceptual aspects of lunch meats as pets, but I have pets under heat lamps and that comparison makes me ill!
