McDonald's Flooded in the Name of Art

Self proclaimed mainstream-subversive art collective Superflex, decided they'd answer a question nobody had ever bothered to ask: "What does a McDonald's restaurant look like as it slowly fills with water?"

Although we should thank them as they took the time to painstakingly recreate a McDonald's and slowly flood it, filming it all for an exhibition at the South London Gallery.

It's actually quite a satisfying thing to watch a generic boring fast food joint wash away, be sure to check out the video on the page.

Their latest work is a short film, “Flooded McDonald’s”, where they’ve (shockingly accurately) created a full-size replica of the inside of the ubiquitous fast food joint and then slowly filled it with water. Playing now in an exhibition at South London Gallery, the film is exactly what the title suggests and yet so much more.

They should have come to my town about 2 years ago... the Delaware river flooded the mcdonalds there up to the roof and then proceeded to wash a good portion of the building away.

I actually have a show up of 40 paintings by an artist who documented McDonalds signs after hurricane Katrina!

Check it out - The show is up through February 18.

See what it REALLY looked like!
