So awkward and hilariousâ€¦

So much better than planking or owling.
I made it halfway! I can’t watch soooo awkward! 1:16 was the best though
The 1:55 made me laugh. And when the police officer approached the lady toward the end.
Maybe we should consider the models to be just as awkward and cooky. I admire how long these women can hold still!
I already do, they look likes giraffes that got hit by buses or something, dangly limbs all over the place and stuff… XD
Holy cow! Who are these crazy faces?!? The people walking by astounded were hilarious but also crazy that some people just walk on by, we are so tolerant of madness … when it’s strangers. I lost it when the gardener poked the lady lying down posing in his bushes trying to look provocative …or whatever!! Ha ha haaa!
“Normal women” posing like models in public”
It happens every day!
Can we finally discuss why the vast majority of women in Hollywood are pigeon-toed!? Please!?
Tell me this is on your list of things to post about.
Now *this* is performance art I understand. Love it.
is there a way to turn just the music off? I can’t hear what they’re saying
they were just saying “I always wanted to be a model” over and over.
I would love to hear the commentary, but it is drowned out by the music. Nice visual; would be nice to hear what the artist had to say about her work!
I agree. What a shame to destroy a good creative idea with such mindless, annoying music.
The sound is supposed to be like that. To make you think.
Ridiculous. Drown out the commentary, making it impossible to understand what ppl were saying.
Made me think, “I need to mute this.”
I think it would’ve been more of a statement had they had a picture or a cutout of the model standing there. If I saw a woman standing in an awkward position for no apparent reason, I would assume she was having a seizure, or something. Yes, models look just as ridiculous, but they also don’t stand there for hours with the same expression for no reason, they’re at least making money for it.
Yes, it looked pretty stupid. It doesn’t look like modeling, just fat asylum escapees. Yes, they’re too fat to be models, even if models are too skinny.
What is fat?
I hope they are at least telling these people, because for some like the girl laying in the flowers, yes people freaked out not knowing if she was okay or not, and the one had a police officer there.
Why the idea is neat, they need to speak and at least say “im just posing” or something
i get what you’re saying, but that kinda ruins the element of weirdness.
maybe is they somehow posted the picture they were emulating beside the person, then the point would be gotten, without ruining the kooky-ness of the act itself.
Haven’t ANY of these people ever heard of a human statue?!
How fabulous to see Madrid looking so wonderful in the summer, im surprised the pickpockets didnt get the woman in Callao, and I bet the ones helping the girl on the floor at the Prado werent Spanish, I should say they were American tourists! A bit worrying for tourists to see her on the floor like that, perhaps not the best idea.
Public reaction toward the end was touching — as if they were lovingly pulling the women back to reality. We are know that modeling is the extreme, and that life at that level of extremity is impossible to sustain. It takes care to rescue someone from the brink.
This is just stupid. This is nothing like being a model, Models don’t stand (or lay) still for that long. They are being paid, they have hella makeup and accessories, jewelry, etc. all of which is topped off by photoshop. What was shown is more like insanity than it was modelling. No wonder the people reactted the way they did.
I think what they were pointing out is that a lot of the poses that the models get photographed in are unrealistic and ridiculous, but the average woman is led to believe that they are what they should aspire rather than seeing it as advertising or art. This video points that out by putting the average women in average places. They stand still to emphasise the postures. People are expected to react and this adds to the thought process of the viewer of the video.
MarvelX42 human statues are portrayed as art, this was certainly courageous, but the lady laying next to the flowers was a bit much, as a nurse I would be assessing her fir life.
I don’t get it.
I get it. It’s clever, defamiliarizing the glamorous after the glamorous has already become expected by society as normal. But honestly, go for a jog, fat chicks.
Those ladies are sah-weeeet. Very Brave but OMG it sounds like that crazy dude from Sesame Street is playing the piano in the background! AHHHH STOPPPPPP!
That’s so funny , I remeber him pounding his head on the keyboard
Why do people pick apart someone else’s art? It is what it is, u either like it or u don’t but what’s the point in making silly comments about it would be better without music. Its from the artist not anyone else.
When people say stuff like ‘that’s not what models do’ well most art is exagerated, everything in the media is OTT. Its called taking the piss.
Get a sense of humour!
I like the macdonalds women, and everyone acts so ‘concerned’ when all they really care about is customers not wanting to come in because she’s there haha.
i’m sorry, but out of context, they just look like morons. i’d call the psych ward. seriously, i would think they’d had some sort of psychotic break, except the woman lying in the road. her, i’d just call an ambulance.
That is the point
Music for that vid made me want to take a sharp, boney skinny model like a pencil and use her to poke my eyes out…
(We'll never share your info)
