We can’t stop watching this Tumblr video of a girl with her paint roller
“Art” can mean a lot of different things nowadays. But we’re more than certain that this strange video of a young woman lamenting how people constantly mistake her for a teen—while sitting in her car and playing with a paint roller—is nothing short of true art.
The video has gone viral on Tumblr, with over 300,000 notes, circulating through all sorts of users’ dashboards.
Everything about it is perfect. Between running down the people who have mistaken her for a 13-year-old (such as the waitress who gave her clam chowder and the man on an airplane with the cranberry juice) to pulling down her sunglasses and reclining in her seat, this young woman is either a performance artist or just a normal Tumblr user going off on some struggle in their daily life—which often makes for a viral moment anyway.
At the very least, it’s better than Bjork’s exhibit at the MoMA.
