Duck Hunt Deserves to Hang Next to Da Vinci's Mona Lisa

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 5:22 PM

In this clever little ad, the Associazione Italiana Opere Multimediali Interattive (or Italian Association for Interactive Multimedia) makes the case for the video game as art. When a museum-goer spots some pixelated water fowl flying above Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa he grabs the Nintendo gun controller dangling handily from the frame and starts blasting. Obviously, this sort of thing wouldn't fly with the actual Mona Lisa, but you get the point. (TheDailyWhat)
