I enjoy fine art along with my pop art, and even though I don’t pretend to be an expert on the modern art scene, I stay up on the big stars and find my own personal favorites (like Ruscha, Prince and Yue Minjun). But some things just seem abstract for abstract sake. Yi Zhou is an acclaimed globalista who makes big multi-media art installations (not my fave medium) and even showed at Sundance…but aside from Pharrell’s C.I.A.-ready knife skills, the best part of this piece is the soundtrack by Ennio Morricone (especially the scratchy record-player white noise). On the other hand, this clip below, of Pharrell fighting Flat Eric (the puppet from French producer Mr. Oiso’s famous Levi’s commercial) looks very promising : )

After the jump…you can see the original Flat Eric Levi’s commercial…
