What is Art?

I came across this clip and didn't really think much of it. I didn't think it was very shocking or even very funny. Then I followed the creator's (not THE Creator's) suggestion that I read the reactions to the clip, here, and the heated discussion that ensued. It was then I understood that the clip is, undisputably, Art. This is 21st century art. Instantly accessible to everyone, the way art is supposed to be, and evoking emotions, as art does at it's best.

I now have a better appreciation for some of the more abstract modern art that exists. Art doesn't have to be anything, or mean anything specific, but great art does evoke emotions, even if it is just a passionate response decrying the art as not art.

Damn I'm profound.
