Jeff Koons Must Die!!!

My awesome colleague Wayne Madsen turned me onto a video game project of Hunter Jonakin, Jeff Koons Must Die!!!. The project is an 80's style arcade FPS.

Besides the obvious fact that this is a little slice of awesome sauce, the JKMD is part of a fine Oedipal tradition in the Arts. The project is definitive exploration of the metaphorical slaying of a Father figure to transcend to the next level. The last work I can remember that evoked such a reaction in me was Erased DeKooning.
"What if you were locked in a museum overnight, with a rocket launcher, during a Jeff Koons retrospective?"
