Eat Like Andy.

This is from an ad I saw during Super Bowl 2019. It was a Burger King ad that showed a clip from a 1982 documentary called 66 Scenes from America. Burger King didn't want to take anything away from, or alter, the video in anyway. They did cut it down from 4 minutes to 45 seconds. The video shows Andy Warhol eating a whopper and the only thing BK added was a hashtag that said: #eatlikeandy. I like it because Andy Warhol made normal, everyday items into art and really challenged all of us to rethink what it means for something to be ART. It has come full circle.
