    that was disturbing.

    What really depresses me on this whole thing: not one comment to this mentions JOSEPH BEUYS!! The title, I’m assuming, it s play on Beuys performance piece How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare. Yeah, I DO have a midterm involving that work tomorrow, but I would have hoped someone could point it out. It’s interesting however that I googled Ron English and really, it makes sense with his play on advertising and also referencing other artists. *sigh*

  14. Natasha Lopez de Arenosa on February 27, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    Good video, Mike! Thanks for sharing! :]
    And people, it’s a STUFFED plushie! Get over it. How about protesting the real animal abusers, or the fetish crush videos where small animals are stepped on by some woman in heels? Work on your damn grammar, too.
    Thanks again, Mike; look forward to more random videos.

  17. ThE BlaCK HaWK on February 27, 2010 at 11:20 am

    Hey Mike…

    I know it’s probably too soon to ask, but aren’t you & MFR gonna do something bigger than the Download To Donate project, this time for Chile?? This one seems to be much bigger than the previous one in Haiti๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Please do something, thank you & MFR a lot for all of your efforts…
    Take care!

  18. Neka on February 27, 2010 at 9:33 am

    Nice shot!

  21. Blarg! on February 27, 2010 at 7:20 am

    MIKE! WHY AREN’T YOU DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO HOG THE SPOTLIGHT WHEN THERE IS A CRISIS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF?!?!

    Seriously, the nerve of some people…

  22. nico on February 27, 2010 at 6:17 am

    Earthquake in Chile. At least 78 deaths across the country. I was born there, and I have family there, pray for them, man…

  23. highlandpark on February 26, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Thanks for sharing this Mike! The clip reminds me of an NASCAR event, where a critter runs across the track and blows up while the race car runs over it.
    Ron English always impressing me! The beauty of art, some don’t understand it, some get horrified, some are disgusted, some enjoy it, some are not even aware of it!
    Another analogy, Graffiti art. The majority of the kids see it as self-expression art. The City Council sees it as property defacement & vandalism. Go figure!

  24. Kelsi on February 26, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Yeah that was kinda odd…
    And disturbing…
    Atleast the bunny was cute when it was alive!!!

  25. ben moon on February 26, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    why on EARTH did u refuse to participate in we are the world?????????? u guys would have brightened the song… lol im a huge mj fan as well

  26. Andrew Leezan on February 26, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    NIGHT
    THE BLINDS ARE CLOSED
    THE LIGHTS ARE OFF
    NOBODY’S HOME
    I’M LYING ON THE FLOOR STARING AT THE CEILING
    THINKING ABOUT THE THINGS I WANNA CHANGE IN MY LIFE
    REMINISING ALL THE WRONG AND SENSELESS THINGS I’VE DONE IN MY PAST
    AS “MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT” PLAYING SONG AFTER SONG

    THAT’S THE WAY I LIKE.

  27. mayra on February 26, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    wicked!
    xD!

  28. Krissie the Linkin Park Vampire on February 26, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    The poor poor poor bunny. America has messed up ways of finding humor
    But at least the bunny was cute while it lived!!

  29. Cristina on February 26, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    Hey mike,i know that i’m not more important than ur other fans,or than the other people who comments here.I just want 2 say that you’ve always been a very very important person for the last 6 years for me.Of course i don’t know u,i only hear your songs,have (many) pictures of u and see you on the tv etc..But i really would like to talk to you,or meet you some time!!! i don’t know!hahaha (continue)

  30. Paul on February 26, 2010 at 4:58 pm

  34. Erinlouise on February 26, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    *laughs guilty evil laugh* pop art๐Ÿ˜„

  35. Hell_enia on February 26, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    I guess this is American non-understood humour… Really, is that funny, has it got a meaning? Is it even interesting to watch, at all?

    Mike. I really start losing the impression I had for u. First this weird Micachu and now a crappy commercial…. hm…. *…..what else…..*

  36. Shinoda77 on February 26, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Lol I guess I got this one xD

    btw mike, does this remind you of something, hm?๐Ÿ˜€

    Interesting.

    A friend of mine sent me this, you might find it interesting too: 5 minute video made from 6000 paintings http://www.geekologie.com/2009/02/5_minute_video_made_from_6000.php

    What tha gwaaan?

  42. KATHYxx on February 26, 2010 at 10:20 am

    That sums up the art world succinctly imo

  43. anit lewis on February 26, 2010 at 10:12 am

    please do not put somenthing with a poor bunny is so evil, it faceee how you can do that, is a poor bunny isn’t chester in the peta i will say it to him yeah….. i’m gonna cry

  44. dronnington on February 26, 2010 at 9:00 am

    Earlier comments: lol, it’s funny…
    Do you think it’s really funny, that mean you’re lost people. Here kept a big problem of humans.

  45. JanV on February 26, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Well, I didn’t really get the humour in the video. Instead, I felt kinda sad watching it…
    Btw, do you ever check your soundcloud drop box? I’ve sent u couple of tracks I remixed. I’m currently working on a rap song (lyrics & rap by me) on one of your instrumentals (won’t tell u which one, though!). I’ll send that to u as well.
    Pls make sure to check your drop box often!
    Thanks for everything~!

  46. Morinoajin on February 26, 2010 at 8:20 am

  47. emeno on February 26, 2010 at 8:17 am

  48. Whitney on February 26, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Something tells me you’re looking for things to procrastinate your writing. I recommend this cute waste of time, for all kawaii/sushi lovers out there:

    Hahaha LMAO!!! Thx for sharing๐Ÿ™‚ Are you working on any new pieces of art lately? It’d be cool to see a collabo of you and Ron๐Ÿ˜‰

    PS. I saw the new LPUTV episode yesterday night right before I went to bed. It was hilarious! You’re so funny guys๐Ÿ˜€ the funniest thing though was me seeing a dream of you wearing clown costumes and dancing to that demo inside of the bus!!!! Can you imagine that? When I woke up I was like “What? LOL” xD

  81. ZAHRA on February 25, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    i hate rabbets anyways soooo uhhhhhhhhhh that was weird๐Ÿ˜„

  82. Aiman on February 25, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    I don’t get it.

  83. NEOSHIDA on February 25, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    The spilled blood / ketchup look tasty…

  84. SoUneik on February 25, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    I see how it is. Tweetin to Conan the barbarian… When the future emperor of California is right here. hahaha No, but seriously… (raises eyebrows x2)
    PS: I heart gore.

  85. Alexandra Nofi (Shadower_Liltani) on February 25, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    I would really like to know the keywords you typed into youtube in order to find this video.Ya know, it takes a lot to creep out somebody like me, but, Ron English managed to freak me out a little bit. Good job, Ron.

  86. Mike W on February 25, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    I have to say, I really didn’t get that at all.

  87. shima on February 25, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    LOL dude that was so uncalled for. tanx for sharin. keep em comin!๐Ÿ˜›

  88. abby on February 25, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    hahaha! Strawberry Shortcake!๐Ÿ˜€

    thanks Mike..

  89. mariya on February 25, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    OMG!!!!POOR RABBIT.

  90. Jessiexo on February 25, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Hii๐Ÿ™‚ Well this doesn’t really have anything to do with this posthere goes:
    About the 8-Bit Rebellion, I think you should push the promotion more. The LP fan base can only do so much (unless what you want is soley to just give us a new song and a cool game๐Ÿ™‚ which is cool haha but i think if you want this to be big, you need to kick up the gear a bit.

    I don’t want you guys to be disappointed like Chester was with the outcome of DBS. I (and I as in a lot of other fans too) feel like that was too heavily dependant on LP fans and not enough promotion. DBS’s album was really good and I felt like a lot of non LP fans would’ve liked it. just a thought.

  91. smokin on February 25, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    if it any consolation, it got ran over by a Porsche, the hare died in style

  92. hmm on February 25, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    uhm…no censor? I find it kinda disturbing…

  93. Gloria on February 25, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    I don’t know if I should feel sorry for the dead hare or say that the Porsche is superior over the hare and deserved to run over the hare. Sacrfices come with the price of art.

  94. ktacaceres on February 25, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    lol!!!
    hahahahahahahaha….poor bunny! hahahahahaha
    funny video!!

  95. Andrew Leezan on February 25, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    THAT WHAT I WROTE ABOUT IN MY EARLIER COMMENT, I LOVE RON ENGLISH AND HIS ART, AND I THINK YOUR COLLABO WITH HIM WOULD BE GREAT MIXTURE OF ART, BUT LIKE I SAID ZILLION TIMES YOUR ART WORK IS THE BEST FORVER AND EVER, I WAS ABOUT TO BUY YOUR PAINTINGS AT YOUR STORE, BUT I DON’T HAVE GODDEMNED CREDIT CART. BUT I BELIEVE SOMEDAY I WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE ONE! YOUR ART BECAME A PART OF MY LIFE! THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT WORK!
