Or to the pavement to be exact.... talk about suffering for your art and principles...

The guy may have a point but shucks...:\

Did he get the sack?

A friend (some friend! ha) sent me an unexpurgated video of the thing.

Weird description, "He nailed it to..." The video just shows him sitting there, with no hammer in sight.

The close up shows the 4-inch or so nail passing through the unmentionables, with the tip of the nail down in between the crevices of the stone.

Nailing into a stone? Not.

Oh well, being pedantic. But looks more like he sat down and just pushed it all the way through the soft bits, then opined, "I'm ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille."

Cue zoom shot.

What people will do for art! Tracey Emin, step aside!
