Artist Makes Stuffed Pet Cat Rise Again…As Helicopter [VIDEO]
Birdies beware! The latest breakthrough in aviation comes not from our own renowned scientists, but from a Dutch artist who chose to pay tribute to his deceased feline in a very odd way. He stuffed him and turned him into a helicopter.
After writing about the Japanese artist who fed his genitals to paying customers, I thought I was beyond being freaked out, or exclaiming "WTF!" Well, leave it to the world to leave me speechless once again. True to my nature, I also had the irresistable urge to share. Quit reading now, wifeykins (cat lover).
Dutch artist, Bart Jansen has just upped the "ewwwww" ante by turning his beloved, deceased kitty into an actual flying machine. And in another case of irony run wild, the cat's name was Orville...as in Orville Wright, one half of the famed flying pioneers, whom he was actually named after. Part of me wonders if this guy had this scheme in mind all along. Geez, I hope not.
"Orvillecopter," as he is now known, was affectionately splayed out, outfitted with propellers, and placed on display in an Amsterdam gallery as part of the city's Kunstrai art festival. Isn't that sweet?
There is still work to be done on the remote controlled kitty, which is still incapable of uninterrupted flights.
'He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight,' Jansen explained.
Something tells me that Snoopy and his "Sopwith Camel" would love this!
Seriously, what would you guys do without me?
Check out the video...or don't. It's out of this world and just sooooooo wrong.
