Best. Headline. Ever.

Also, what a waste of flip-flops.

It's made from 10,000 flip flops! That means 5,000 people without shoes could be wearing those... Ah well, I guess it's art.

Poor monkey. I just picture him saying that old line, "Heeeelp! I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Also, I first read the headline as "Giant Monkey made of lip-gloss falls down"

Aww poor monkey. I like to pretend they plan on donating the flip flops to the shoe-less once this exhibit is done.

Hey! That monkey is in Sao Paulo here in Brazil!!

It didn't fall down, it was built that way. i can't get your link to open FF, but the designer of the piece's site has info and links here http://www.florentijnhofman.nl/dev/project.php?id=171 and there is a making of video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HMcR-rZ ... re=related that is good if you turn the sound off.

The flip flops look like crepe

BUT i stand corrected- the artist was sponsored by a flipflop maker, i can't tell which one from first glance, but those ugly shoes are supposed to be promoting their brand. Yikes.

I can't find anything interesting in english about it but an article and interview with the artist are here http://noticias.r7.com/sao-paulo/notici ... 01104.html for anyone willing to fire up google translate.

It did look suspiciously intact for something that large which has fallen. One would expect flip-flops to be scattered all over the forking show.
