You know what they say about how McDonalds food is immortal and won’t spoil or decompose, no matter how long you leave it out? An artist named Ben Campbell has taken that idea to the extreme by making a very realistic-looking mummy made out about $200 worth of ground up McDonalds food and some resin to hold it all together.
Ben explains further on his Kickstarter page:
1. Ancient Egypt was preoccupied with achieving a form of immortality through odd customs such as constructing pyramids and mummification.
2. Modern society is preoccupied with achieving a form of immortality through odd customs such as celebrity status and the construction of corporations.
3. McDonald’s is highly representative of American culture, even iconic.
Blah, blah, corporations, mummification, death…you get the idea.
If you’re wondering why this guy has a Kickstarter page to begin with, it’s because he’s seeking the funds to make even more McDonalds food mummies. Because two McDonalds food mummies aren’t already too many. Once he has his food mummy army, he will presumably animate them and use them to revolt against capitalism. Go here to donate to his cause, or if you’d rather just help him get sued by McDonalds (another goal of his), go here.
