Silly but funny? will.i.am at The Louvre

JAMIE EDWARDS

Rembrandt.i.am

Stumbled across this on t’internet and I’m conflicted. Is it brilliant? Is it terrible? Or just plain weird? I won’t know, maybe it’s all those things. I’ve gotta say that will.i.am’s face super-imposed on the Old Masters is quite funny, but the new captions on the frames are better: “Rembrandt.i.am”! Even funnier still is the moment Scherzinger begins warbling as the Mona Lisa. 

 

On film: Monet, Renoir, Rodin and Degas (with beard game ratings)

Some videos here shared by Huffpost Arts & Culture, showing (separately) Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Auguste Rodin and Edgar Degas at work in the studio, on the street etc. As a bit of fun, Priscilla Frank gives each artist a score for their beard game (in light of the exemplary examples of turn-of-the-century proto-hipster facial hair that each artist is sporting–in case you’re bothered, Monet wins, with a score of 8.9 for his stonking beard).
