Old Video of Comedian Louis CK Making Fun of ‘Fine Art’ Photography

Here’s a little dose of humor to brighten your Saturday. Back in the 90s, in a jab at both MTV and avant-garde photography, a young Louis CK put this funny little clip together. In it, his name is David Cross (perhaps another jab at his fellow comedian by the same name) and his specialty? Toilet photography.

There are a few different messages CK was maybe trying to get across here. The whole skit ends with the phrase “MTV will show you a lot of crap, and tell you it’s art. But I will show you crap … and it’s like art,” making it likely that’s the angle he was going for.

But there’s something particularly hilarious about the comedian bent over a flushing toilet, taking frantic pictures with his rangefinder as he pours more and more food coloring in. “To me the commode is like a universe,” says the tortured artist, “and I can manipulate that universe just by flushing.”

Obviously this takes the idea of the crazy photographer to silly proportions, but once in a while it may not be such a bad thing to laugh at the artist inside all of us that’s always aiming for “creative,” but sometimes hits “crazy” instead.
