Art. You either love it or you don’t...understand it. There’s really no middle ground.

Fortunately, some people have grown to love ’art’ and all of its complicated intricacies, even down to the seemingly mundane interpretations that actually have more to them than meets the eye.

Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

Take this 27-second video by Ron English, titled "How to Explain Art to a Dead Hare", for example. Combining a rabbit stuffed toy, prosthetic blood, and a Porsche Cayman, English takes all of 27 seconds to get his point across. Sadly, I wasn’t really paying that much attention to the little bunny, instead focusing intently on that shiny, white Cayman that lays waste to the rabbit after running it over. And yeah, I gotta give points for the fake blood too, but what’s with the eerie little girl singing in the background? You have to watch it to see what I’m talking about.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Well, I think this whole video has something to do between choosing. I guess, if you don’t drive a Cayman, you take away your chance of experiencing the real art.

hmm. Is this video is somewhat related to " How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare?" by Joseph Beuys? Honestly, I don’t get the point of this whole thing. I wonder what’s the connection between the hare and the Cayman?

hmmm I called it a splash art. The only missing part is the canvas.

Same here, I really don’t get their point of running over a hare.

Honestly, I didn’t get what they want to bring to the public.
