Pranksters Put Eyeglasses On Floor Of Museum, People Mistake For Art Piece, Take Pictures

May 27, 2016

Twitter users @TJCruda and @k_vinnn set a pair of eyeglasses on the floor of San Francisco's Museum Of Modern Art after being underwhelmed by the rest of the art there. Then people mistook the glasses for an art piece and began studying it and taking pictures. Although who's to say the glasses aren't really art? It was at least a brief performance piece. I would have called it 'The Floors Have Eyes.' I would have also pretended like I didn't see the glasses and stepped on them to see how people would react. Then yelled NONE OF YOU SAW THAT and started waving a knife around. I'm kidding, I wouldn't have done any of those things because I don't have time to spend pranking people at museums -- I've got a life to live. Kidding again I'm so bored let's go throw sticks at each other in the woods.

Keep going for several more shots of people's reactions.

    No, what they've done is accidentally create art and mistaken it for a prank. What matters is the reaction it gets from people, not the intent of the creator.

  • paperboy

    No.

    Hmm, that's an interesting post-modern statement, elegant in its simplicity of rejection.

    How can sane people even think a pair of glasses on the floor is art? Shows how desperate you are to look arty and intellectual. Ha!
    The only thing left was for the pranksters to come back and pick them up, wear them and walk away.

    This isn't even far-fetched for a modern art exhibit!

  • Bubbubsky

    Pretentious wanna-be assholes. Modern art sucks (and this prank is great).

  • Dano

    If I could lose anymore faith in humanity (which I can not) I would have done so right here.

  • Juvenal Osegueralopez

    *Poops in Corner puts sign up* Master Piece!

  • Mike Harper

    That's why most modern art is total crap and then you have the hacks that think they "get it". This just proves that.

  • Xockszky

    There's another post right here on Geekologie of a crane that fell down at the art museum, and everyone thought that was an exhibit too.

  • MustacheHam

    Pretty funny and a bit deep as the victims don't "see" that it's a prank.
