Some people do seriously odd things in the name of art, but Nate Hill has gone one step further with his project, Punch Me Panda.
The project involves Hill dressing up as a panda and going around the streets, letting random people beat him up in exchange for a penny.
Initially, it was as a response to residents of New York’s aggression after 9/11 as part of a social experiment, but now 6 foot 3′ Hill seems to have taken the world by storm and is seriously enjoying his social experiment.
Hill rather bizarrely claimed:
I don’t wanna get hurt but like, there has to be a possibility of me getting hurt or I’m not interested.
Slightly odd but artists are a strange breed of people, and that’s one hell of a way to take out your aggression.
