$100 Gets You a Colorado Version of the $120K Duct Taped Banana
Well, if you don't know about the duct taped banana on a wall, I'll quickly fill you in.
So, this artist, Maurizio Cattelan, created a piece of art that was literally just a banana duct taped to a wall in a gallery. He titled his work 'Comedian'.
He made three copies of 'Comedian'. Two sold for $120,000, and the third sold for $150,000. That's not even the craziest part, though....
Saturday, some guy walked into the art gallery, called himself the 'Hungry Artist', pulled one of the bananas off, ate it and had someone record the whole thing.
David Datuna wasn't charged for ruining the artwork, and he wasn't arrested, according to BBC.
Now, this may seem ridiculous, but hold on because we're not done with this roller coaster yet.
You can have your own 'Comedian' artwork made in good ole Colorado, because there are now copycats selling similar pieces.
I found this when I was casually scrolling through Facebook Marketplace.... The post has since been taken down. Maybe someone bought it?
