New Banksy ‘Bemusement Park’ Art Project Fires Shots At Disneyland

Dismaland is the new project by street artist Banksy and you might notice a few similarities between it and Mickey Mouse’s famous hood, Disneyland. Banksy calls this a ‘bemusement park’ and has set the experience up to be, well, utterly dismal with the artist encouraging visitors to take selfies and tweet them with the caption #MyDismalExperience. Even the workers and security guards have been paid to look unhappy, creating an all-encompassing miserable experience which fires shots at entities that promote mindless consumerism like Disneyland. Let’s start the show.

14. “This place isn’t exactly horrible, but it’s not great either, it’s just sort of in between, I just can’t think of a good word to describe it though.”

 

15. Life’s a beach, except when you’re living in Britain.

16. “Have you got my back bro?”. “Yeah bro, don’t worry, I got your butt.”
