A fibreglass replica of Ronald McDonald having his shoes shined by a real live boy. The sculpture will visit the sidewalk outside a different McDonalds every lunchtime for the next week. Today: South Bronx. – Banksy [Better In Than Out]

Controversy. Thats what I like about Banksy. It’s the same controversy that makes people hate Banksy. I think he is a perfect political voice of today kinda like Rothko of the Post War Era and Picasso during the early days of Spain. His (Banksy) art makes you look at situations a little differently.

Take the image today (above) of Ronald McDonald having his shoes shined by a little boy (who is real by the way). To me this is a real life version of the movie “Super Size Me” directed by Morgan Spurlock. It shows the irony of McDonalds and how we are all “slaves” to the fast food giant, basically saying we’re not above shining the corporations shoes. You can also look at it in a way of Mickie D’s” making us their “bitch” by changing our lives and diets making us unhealthy by the food they produce but gaain this is just MY opinion, don’t shoot me for it! – ArtAboveReality

    I rarely eat one because it’s horrible on any sort of regular basis, but I love myself a fresh Big-Mac. It’s not McD’s who makes me drive up and open my wallet though.
