James Franco Sold What Now For $10,000?

James Franco took a break from his busy schedule of earning all the degrees to participate in an art project called the Museum of Non-Visible Art. Basically, all the “art” is invisible and is just represented by those little museum/gallery title card things, which, sure, but also this “art” is for sale? Already that is ridiculous. And now someone BOUGHT it? Oh brother. And wait until you see what the art placard said:

A unique piece, only this one is for sale. The air you are purchasing is like buying an endless tank of oxygen. No matter where you are, you always have the ability to take a breath of the most delicious, clean-smelling air that the earth can produce. Every breath you take gives you endless peace and health. This artwork is something to carry with you if you own it. Because wherever you are, you can imagine yourself getting the most beautiful taste of air that is from the mountain tops or fields or from the ocean side; it is an endless supply.

OH YUCK. The worst part about this besides everything is that you know if anyone actually questioned/made fun of James Franco for this he would backpedal and claim that he was making fun of the art world the whole time, except that he isn’t, like, at all. If this is a joke about the art world then this is a joke about racism. Good jokes! These guys love it:

“Our dysentery is actually a post-ironic commentary ABOUT dysentery.”

Congratulations to James Franco on his continued success in wearing out the world’s goodwill towards him! (Via Animal New York.)
