Ikea museum prank

We know as much about art as a person who once hung Britney Spears posters and flattened cardboard beer boxes all over their dorm room walls would know, so we for sure would have fallen for this little trick by Dutch pranksters Lifehunters.

These were the same people behind the "feeding McDonald's to foodies" setup, and this time they are baiting art experts by displaying a Ikea print worth €10 in a museum and asking folks what they think of the work by "Ike Andrews."

Reactions range from modest enthusiasm to insisting that they would pay €2.5 million to own Ike Andrew's latest work. Once the story behind the print is revealed, most of the art lovers laugh in disbelief. Seriously, these people are really good sports about being duped on camera.

Except for these two dudes, who look like they Googled "cliché art snob wardrobe" to choose their outfits. Well, one of them does. The other guy in the red plaid looks like a brute that tries to beat up Liam Neeson in one of the Taken films and immediately regrets it:
