Does the Louvre really need the ticket sales that badly? Isn’t it the place tourists in France automatically flock to after visiting that tower thingy? Vulture tells us that, since setting their latest video “APESHIT” in the famed home of the Mona Lisa, the Louvre now has a tour inspired by the Carters bringing high art to the sullied masses. As if the Mona Lisa didn’t have enough to contend with what with tourists always complaining about how small she is in person.
In the video, Bey and Jay pose sullenly in front of various pieces of art while their dancers do each other’s hair, experience what looks like collective full body dry heaves, and undulate in front of the velvet ropes. It’s like art squared! And now YOU can experience the experiencing that the Carters experienced in what is probably the world’s most famous art museum.
The Parisian museum reportedly now has a 90-minute guided tour taking you through 17 pieces of art depicted in the recent Beyoncé and Jay-Z video, which dropped on June 16.
If you don’t have the money to drop on an overpriced pastel and tickets to Gay Paree, Vulture was cool enough to put together a guide identifying all of the paintings that the Most Important People In The World further enriched by posing in front of them.
This is going to enrage a lot of people who want to go on this tour. They’re going to expect the entire museum to clear out, and all of the Louvre staff to turn their backs and refrain from looking at and speaking to them. Please be forewarned that the privilege here is to be able to stand where they stood, you don’t get to be them. What are you – insane?
