That Hancock video is really funny. It is from the film called ( I think ) the Artist. The film can be downloaded somewhere, I have it. The only comedy I have actually laughed out loud to is Laurel and Hardy, the Three Stooges, and that film. It is hilarious, as is that clip there.

It's 'The Rebel'. Not a masterpiece, but very funny.

I'm not really big into art but I do enjoy listening to some of the story's behind some of the paintings and the artists.

One picture that I've seen in person is this one - that bottom bit looks weird to say the least doesn't it?

2020 Online Art Exhibitions 1200px-Hans_Holbein_the_Younger_-_The_Ambassadors_-_Google_Art_Project

It is called The Ambassadors and hangs in the National Gallery in London and was painted nearly 500 years ago in 1531 (the year Queen Elizabeth I was born) by Hans Holbein.

This is what the story is behind the strange skull, which is a sort of optical illusion and appears to be quite a normal picture of one when viewed at a certain angle, which I've done myself.

The most notable and famous of Holbein's symbols in the work is the distorted skull which is placed in the bottom center of the composition. The skull, rendered in anamorphic perspective, another invention of the Early Renaissance, is meant to be a visual puzzle as the viewer must approach the painting from high on the right side, or low on the left side, to see the form as an accurate rendering of a human skull. While the skull is evidently intended as a vanitas or memento mori, it is unclear why Holbein gave it such prominence in this painting. One possibility is that this painting represents three levels: the heavens (as portrayed by the astrolabe and other objects on the upper shelf), the living world (as evidenced by books and a musical instrument on the lower shelf), and death (signified by the skull). It has also been hypothesized that the painting is meant to hang in a stairwell, so that persons walking up the stairs and passing the painting on their left would be startled by the appearance of the skull. A further possibility is that Holbein simply wished to show off his ability with the technique in order to secure future commissions.[8] Artists often incorporated skulls as a reminder of mortality. Holbein may have intended the skulls (one as a gray slash and the other as a medallion on Jean de Dinteville's hat) and the crucifix in the upper left corner to encourage contemplation of one's impending death and the resurrection

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ambassadors_(Holbein)

Once you get to understand that often some pictures actually tell a story than are simply meant to be just eye candy, then I find them to be that much more interesting.

Just my personal view anyway.

Ive seen this painting before. The anamorphic perspective of the Skull is indeed, remarkable.
Maybe it was to detract from the Gentleman on the lefts shoes which appear to rise higher at the toes in comic book fashion. Obviously, looking at the Globe in the background, this is pre flat-earth-theory.
The Lute suggests these two are middle class.
To be serious again for a moment, it really is weird, the anamorphic skull, and is perhaps alone in the Renaissance Art World in having this. Seriously odd!
University Challenge is on tonight. This Painting will crop up from time to time on there, and people can impress others when they know the answer!

He actually is a very good painter! And as good as his talent is in Painting, I do prefer his work when he was the Drummer in the band called Boston.

Khayatan told BuzzFeed News that people gathered around the exhibit to view it and take photographs. He, in turn, took photographs of them admiring his work and later posted them to Twitter, where they went viral.
Nguyen shared images, too, noting the awkwardness of having to retrieve his glasses before they moved on in the museum.

@TJCruda the embarrassing part about it was walking back to pick it up and act like nothing happened

Carl Andre's "Equivalent VIII" made me laugh when I heard that by the time the Tate bought it, Andre had given up hope of selling it and had sold the bricks back to the builder's merchants who had since gone out of business.

Manzoni. 
There are some real nutters in the art world. If you are not oversensitive you might want to look at these fruit cakes  - 5 performance artists who had surgery for their art. Absolutely bizarre.

NB: probably best stay away from the video for number 5 Bonce Smile
And P-Orridge is the Manc satanist behind Throbbing Gristle (Industrial band) and Psychic TV (Electronic band) in the 70's and 80's (they were both shit) as was this bit of "art"

https://edition.cnn.com/style/article/stelarc-ear-arm-art/index.html

It's gruesomely fascinating and strangely beautiful, but is an ear on an arm art?
Stelarc, the award-winning Australian performance artist who has grown a third ear on his arm for art's sake, believes it is. And as he pursues further surgeries to install a Wi-Fi connected microphone that will allow people anywhere in the world to listen to what he hears, he hopes he can convince others of his vision.
"It's when art is surprising that it becomes interesting," Stelarc, told CNN. "Because it's generating that anxiety, that uncertainty and that ambivalence and reaction that makes the body re-examine the world."
Part surgical, part human, Stelarc's ear was first constructed using a frame made out of biocompatible material that's commonly used in plastic surgery. Once securely transplanted into his arm, the artist's own tissue and blood vessels morphed with the material and the ear is now a living, feeling, functioning part of his body.

Although it can't yet hear, Stelarc now plans to use his own stem cells to develop a proper external ear lobe before implanting a Wi-Fi enabled microphone. Once connected, this microphone will be permanently activated so people across the globe will be able to 'tune in' to him 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
