Recently, an Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan came under the spotlight for an art piece he made. It wasn't your plain old generic painting or a sculpture. The piece, called "Comedian," featured a real, edible banana taped to a wall. It was a part of an exhibit at Art Basel Miami Beach and was sold for a whopping $120,000. If this didn't make your eyes roll to the back of your skull, another artist David Datuna, recently stunned onlookers by peeling the aforementioned $120,000-worth banana and eating it in front of them completely unapologetically.

If you think that for you, a simple mortal, such pieces of art fly over your head, no need to worry - you're not alone. Thousands and thousands of people online were mocking the art piece and recently, even advertising agencies jumped in on the 'things taped to the wall' wagon, simply because of the sheer absurdity of it. And maybe also because the idea became so recognizable, using such a marketing trick would surely increase their sales. Nonetheless, Bored Panda has compiled for you a list of hilarious attempts from various brands to recreate the now-iconic "Comedian." Scroll down below to see them all and vote for the ones that made you smile.
