At the Hirshhorn last year: "Commercial imagery, such as the logos and signature color combinations that are increasingly inescapable aspects of our visual landscape, has inspired contemporary artists since even before the Pop era. For “Flooded McDonald’s,” (2009), Superflex meticulously constructed and filmed a life-size replica of the interior of an actual restaurant of the fast food chain. The artists borrow the cinematic vocabulary of documentaries, ads, and disaster movies to create this suspenseful, ambiguous drama. For reasons unknown, the patrons and staff have left the premises, leaving viewers behind to watch, think, and speculate."

This is not that:

Definitely turn the volume way down.
